WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A Wichita man has been sentenced to 18 years in prison for the April 2020 shooting death of a teenager as she rode in a car with her brother and boyfriend.

The Sedgwick County district attorney's office said a judge sentenced 34-year-old Joshua Johnson to 216 months for fatally shooting 18-year-old Aubrey Resendez

Officers responded at around 12:40 a.m. on April 13, 2020 to a shooting call at the Kwik Shop in the 600 block of South West Street. They arrived to find a white Dodge Avenger with the rear window shot out. Resendez had suffered a gunshot wound and died at a local hospital.

Police said there was disturbance in the 4200 block of West Pawnee between those in the Dodge and Johnson, who was in a silver 2006 Dodge Ram. Johnson allegedly fired multiple rounds, striking Resendez. Her boyfriend and brother were not hurt.
