WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police say the 34-hour standoff at an apartment complex that ended with the suspect's death is among the longest they have ever dealt with.
Lt. Doug Nolte said Friday the investigation is complex and more time is needed before other details can be released. That is expected to happen Monday.
KFDI-FM (http://bit.ly/12lTD97 ) reports that a SWAT team entered the building shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday. They exchanged gunfire with the 24-year-old suspect, who barricaded himself after firing shots Wednesday in a Kmart during a robbery.
He was found dead in an apartment around 10:30 p.m. Thursday. Police are not saying how he died.
The man also is a suspect in a woman's July 4 stabbing in Derby.
A shelter is open at Ruth Clark Elementary School for displaced residents.
