Shooting at Wichita sports bar hurts two, police say. Sheriff’s deputy arrests suspect

Local law enforcement have arrested a suspect in an early-morning shooting that hurt two people at a south Wichita bar.

Emergency crews were called at around 2 a.m. Sunday to a disturbance at Bourbon Street Sports Bar and Grill, 3863 S. Seneca, said Wichita Police Department spokesman Officer Paul Cruz. Police found a 30-year-old-man and a 40-year-old man with gunshot wounds.

Investigators identified a suspect and provided that information to other law enforcement agencies, including the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office, Cruz said.

A sheriff’s deputy later spotted the suspected shooter’s vehicle at Harry and Seneca, about 3 miles straight north of the restaurant, which is between MacArthur Road and the I-235 exit in south Wichita. After a traffic stop, the deputy arrested 52-year-old Felipe Barrientos II, Cruz said.

Barrientos was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail on suspicion of aggravated battery with a firearm, where he remained Sunday evening in lieu of a $75,000 bond.

The investigation is ongoing.
