Man shot to death by police following robbery in south Wichita

A man has died after he was shot by Wichita police following a robbery in south Wichita late Sunday night, authorities said.

The shooting took place just after 10 p.m. at the Dollar General at Pawnee and Meridian, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said.

Someone called 911 from inside the store to report a robbery in progress, and officers near the area responded quickly to the location, Deputy Chief Terri Moses told media at the scene.

Three men were leaving the store as the officers arrived, and a confrontation occurred. One of the men was shot several times and was taken to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis, where he later died.

The other two men were taken into custody, Moses said. No officers were injured in the incident.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is reviewing the shooting. More information will be released at a briefing later this morning.
