WICHITA, Kan. -- The man who police say shot and killed a home intruder early Monday morning has been arrested.
Officers were called to the 2300 block of North Poplar shortly before 4 a.m. Monday. Officers say a 35-year-old woke up to a noise, then opened his bedroom door and saw a man inside his home. The men began fighting and shots were fired.
When police arrived, they found the homeowner sitting outside on the curb, and the apparent intruder, a 45-year-old man, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds inside the house. He was taken to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Late Monday afternoon, police arrested the homeowner for possession of a firearm by a felon. According to records, he had previously served time for robbery and was released last August.
Police are still investigating circumstances surrounding the shooting.
