WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

New information on last month's shooting death of 52-year-old Michael "Todd" Nelson.

Court documents show that Wichita Police say officers arrived in the 1400 block of E. Gridley on November 15th and found Nelson with a gunshot wound to his abdomen. There was a handgun underneath him, and nearby they found 6 shell casings, a syringe, and some broken glass. Nelson was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Investigating officers spoke to a couple who lives in a Winnebago parked in front of Nelson's home. They said a white truck pulled up and they saw Nelson walk toward it, then they heard a gunshot and screaming. They went to check on Nelson, and he told them that a man later identified as Jeremy "Loko" Honeycutt shot him.

Officers went to a home at Walker and Fern, where they located Honeycutt, and took him into custody. They say he was sitting in his wheelchair, with a fixed blade in a sheath underneath him. He also had a meth pipe with residue in a pouch attached to his right leg.

Police say Jeremy Honeycutt had to prior felony convictions from 2010, for criminal discharge of a firearm, and for criminal threat.

Honeycutt is facing murder charges for the shooting.
