A fourth person has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of an Arkansas man at a rental house on North Holyoke last month, Wichita police confirmed early Thursday.

Dallas Guy, 20, was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail shortly before 1 a.m. Thursday on suspicion of several crimes, including first-degree murder. Capt. Brent Allred said Guy was wanted in connection with the killing of Paul Danny Khmabounheuang at 1452 N. Holyoke on Nov. 13.

Khmabounheuang, 27, was shot during what police described as an attempted robbery of drugs and/or money at the house just northeast of 13th and Hillside.

Police have said four men were let into the house on Holyoke the afternoon of Nov. 13 and then attempted to steal money, drugs or both. A gunfight erupted during which two robbers were wounded and Khmabounheuang was killed.

The two wounded suspects, 19-year-old Orville Smith and 20-year-old Dijon Thomas, were taken to Wesley Medical Center for treatment and booked into jail upon their release from the hospital. Each has been charged with first-degree felony murder, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and a drug charge.

The third suspect, Corey Pollard Jr., 21, was arrested in the 700 block of Sylvan on Nov. 21. He was charged with murder, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and distribution of a controlled substance.

Khmabounheuang was in town visiting a relative when he was shot. Drugs were found inside the house by police investigating the shooting.
