Wichita police say a suspect wanted in connection to the drive-by shooting death of a 23-year-old man earlier this year is in custody.

Jail records show 27-year-old Malcolm Norris was booked July 1 for first-degree murder in commission of a felony. Officer Charley Davidson said Norris, of Valley Center, was arrested in Texas with the help of U.S. Marshals and extradited back to Kansas. 

The shooting happened the evening of April 1 in the 1200 block of North Minnesota. Officers arrived on scene to find Marquez Hutton outside of a home. He had suffered a gunshot wound and died at the scene.

Norris was held Friday on $250,000 bond. 

Officer Davidson said there have been 13 criminal homicides in Wichita this year. Hutton's death was the city's 5th. Two are still being investigated.
