Wichita police have helped Salina cops catch an “armed and dangerous” person of interest in a shooting.

Emergency crews were called to a Salina address at around 7 p.m. Thursday for a reported shooting, Salina police said in a news release. They found one shooting victim, who was taken to a hospital, treated and released.

Investigators identified 20-year-old Zachary Matthew Degraw as a person of interest in the shooting, police said. He has warrants for his arrest issued by the Saline County District Court. Police said Degraw should be considered “armed and dangerous.”

Salina police said Friday afternoon that Degraw was taken into police custody with the assistance of the Wichita Police Department. Sedgwick County Jail records show Degraw was booked at around 4:30 p.m. on suspicion of possession of marijuana and has holds on four charges from an outside agency.
