WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A 39-year-old man died after he exchanged gunfire with members of a Wichita SWAT team after a lengthy standoff on Wednesday, police said.
Officers were called to a home in west Wichita after a report of a shooting. The officers found a woman and child in the front yard and saw a man with a gun go into a home, Wichita Officer Chad Ditch said.
Other people who were in the house were able to leave the home a short time later, Ditch said.
