WICHITA — An ongoing dispute led one Wichita man to fire shots into his neighbor's house Friday night, striking and killing a man inside, police said.
Grady Lane, 35, was found by his wife around 7 a.m. Saturday fatally shot in the head in his home at 532 N. Wabash. However, police believe the shooting occurred around 11 p.m. Friday.
Lt. Todd Ojile said a 41-year-old neighbor stood in Lane's backyard and fired several shots into the upstairs bedroom. Police arrested the suspect Sunday night and expect to present the case to the district attorney's office sometime today. The man was booked on suspicion of first-degree murder and criminal possession of a firearm within five years of a felony, according to Sedgwick County Jail records.
Ojile said police believe the shooting stemmed from a dispute between the two that had carried on for several months.

A call of shots fired was reported in the neighborhood on Friday night, but police dispatched at that time did not find any evidence of a crime. Lane's wife, who was sleeping in a separate room on the lower level of the house, told police she heard shots in the area, but didn't investigate.
