WICHITA, Kan. — Police say a 51-year-old man has died following a shooting in south Wichita.

The man came to a home to visit people at a home early Wednesday morning when a car pulled up. Police say he exchanged words with people in the vehicle, and was then shot by someone in the car.

KWCH-TV reports he was rushed to the hospital where he later died. Police have not released his name.

Authorities don’t believe the shooting was a random act, but they do not have a motive.

Wednesday’s shooting is Wichita’s 28th homicide of the year. It comes a day after a woman’s body was discovered in a Wichita home in an earlier homicide.
