WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Police have identified a man who was shot to death in southwest Wichita early Saturday morning. 

Officers were called at around 12:45 a.m. to a shooting at Pawnee and Cardington. They arrived to find a 31-year-old man who had been shot in leg. He told officers his friend had also been shot at a home in the 2200 bock of South Parkridge. 

"Officers responded to the Parkridge address and upon arrival, they could still hear shots being fired inside of the residence," Officer Charley Davidson said. 

Shortly after, a 21-year-old man who was armed with a handgun exited the home. Officers ordered him to drop the gun, which he did, and the officers took him into custody.

Officers entered the home and found 45-year-old Randy Gibson with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The suspect's 38-year-old girlfriend was also in the home, but she was not hurt.

Investigators learned that Gibson, the 31-year-old man and a 22-year-old man went to the home to move Gibson's property. Gibson had been asked to move out and was in the process of getting his belongings," Davidson said.

"The three males were moving the property when the suspect...began shooting Mr. Gibson."

The other two men were on the porch when the suspect allegedly began shooting, striking both. The 22-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and later arrived at a Wichita hospital.

Jeremiah Mork was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail for first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated battery and criminal possession of a firearm. His bond was set at $250,000.

Kansas Department of Corrections records state that Mork has prior convictions of criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon or drug offender.

An online fund has been established to help Gibson's family with funeral expenses.
