Police searching for man they say fired gun, threatened woman

  • Published Sunday, May 19, 2013, at 1:44 p.m.

Wichita police are searching for a 23-year-old man who they say threatened a 21-year-old woman in the 3300 block of East Roseberry.

Police were called to the area after the woman called 911 reporting a domestic violence incident.

When police arrived, they learned the man was still inside the house and had pulled a gun during the disturbance and fired a round off.

Police barricaded the house shortly after noon Sunday but upon entering the house, discovered the man was no longer there, according to Sgt. Scott Brunow, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department. The woman was uninjured and the only other person inside the house at the time of the incident.

Police were processing the scene for evidence and were looking for the man for questioning.

“We know who he is,” Brunow said.
