Police say a man wanted on a federal warrant was shot and wounded by officers responding to a report of a burglary in southwest Wichita.

Officers went to the home just after 11:00 p.m. Sunday after an elderly woman reported someone was breaking into a shed behind her home in the 2500 block of West Dallas. That's near Pawnee and Meridian.

Deputy Police Chief Terri Moses says officers saw the man was running through the property. When he pulled a weapon, the suspect and two officers exchanged fire. Moses says the officers weren't wounded.

The 30-year-old suspect is in serious condition. Police said he is a convicted felon.
