A domestic argument led a man to shoot himself at Field of Screams, Sheriff Jeff Easter says.

A man turned a gun on himself after an argument with a woman at the Field of Screams haunted attraction in northwest Wichita Friday night. The man did not survive.

The shooting was unrelated to the event or the property, according to Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter, who was requested by Maize police to help process the scene.

There were no other injuries as a result of the shooting, which occurred at around 10 p.m., according to Easter.

“Fortunately right where it happened there were two sheriff deputies,” Easter said. “And they were able, along with the staff, to usher people away so there was no chaos.”
