WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - It's been nearly two weeks since 19-year-old La'Tionna Johnson was shot after breaking up a fight in Old Town, and police continue to search for the accused shooter, 19-year-old La'Niha Banks.

The shooting happened at around 11 p.m. Saturday, March 20 near 1st Street and Washington. Wichita police said Johnson broke up a fight between a friend and Banks. As Banks was driving away, she allegedly shot Johnson twice.

Johnson died several days later. 

Banks was last seen driving a red 2014 Buick Lacrosse, a car which was later recovered. Banks is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to call 911.

With more than 100 violent crimes already this year, according to the community crime map, Lt. Mike Linnehan with the Wichita Police Department said it's time to rethink how officers patrol the Old Town area.

"We assigned a lieutenant to be in charge of night operations. And the lieutenant is the old town supervisor who works Friday and Saturday nights down in Old Town. And what we did is we took groups of officers from each of the patrol bureaus, and we designated particular officers to be responding to Old Town Patrol. And the goal there was consistency," said Linnehan.

He said these designated officers will work with business owners and security guards to make sure everyone stays safe as downtown Wichita continues to grow.

"The overall hope is to curb the violence. So we want to make sure we stress that violence has never been tolerated in Wichita, and it never will be. And it certainly won't be tolerated in Old Town. And if somebody commits a crime of violence in Old Town, we will arrest you, and you will go to jail."
