Police say a woman shot on March 23rd at a home in the 900 block of S. Edgemoore has died. Lucita Adame, 22, is the city's seventh homicide victim this year. She passed away from her injuries Thursday.

Police arrested Adame's 21-year-old ex-boyfriend last week after they say he opened fire on her in the doorway of the home. Four others were inside the house at 924 S. Edgemoore. Police say three were asleep as the shots rang out just before 5:00 AM.

Prosecutors originally charged 21-year-old Rontel Parks with aggravated battery and criminal possession of a firearm. Friday, police said they plan to present additional evidence in the case that could result in murder charges. Parks remains in the Sedgwick Co. jail on a $100,000 bond.
