Police have interviewed more than a dozen people as they try to identify a suspect in the city’s most recent homicide, but they are not close to making an arrest, a law enforcement official said Friday.

Damon Williams, 47, was shot once in the torso and a short time later crashed his car on East Harry near Oliver shortly before 1 a.m. Tuesday, police have said. He died soon after at a local hospital.

Investigators have talked to 10 to 15 people in connection with the case, Wichita police Capt. Brent Allred said.

“There’s a couple of people we’re trying to locate” to talk to, Allred said.

Police hope to get tips that can lead to a break in the case, he said, adding sometimes that takes time.

Anyone with information related to the incident is encouraged to call 911, the homicide unit at 316-268-4181 or Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.

Williams’ death raises the number of homicides in Wichita this year to 13.
