A woman in her 40s who was shot multiple times inside a north Wichita home Saturday afternoon died, Wichita police Officer Paul Cruz said.
The shooting was reported in the 1700 block of North Arkansas at 12:19 p.m. Saturday. Wichita police did not identify the woman and did not say if she lived in the house where she was shot.
When first responders arrived, the woman was unresponsive, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said. She was pronounced dead after being transported to an area hospital, Cruz said.
The shooting is being investigated as a homicide and police are still trying to identify a suspect, Cruz said.
The woman was shot "multiple times throughout her body," he said.
"This is not a random incident," he said. "There's no danger to the public. We're going to continue to investigate this case. We are working currently to try to identify a suspect at this time. "
Cruz did not say if there was anyone else inside the home at the time of the shooting.
"At this point, all I can tell you is this is an active investigation and we are working to try to identify a suspect at this time," Cruz said.
It is Wichita's 30th homicide this year.
