WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 23-year-old man has been charged with fatally shooting a 26-year-old man in Wichita.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1TaDT7j ) reports that Travis Montez Johnson was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder in the killing of JaRon V. Sanders.

Sanders was shot once in the head last month when an argument broke out as he stood in the street in front of his house after a party. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Other charges against Johnson include criminal possession of a firearm and a probation violation.

While appearing Wednesday in Sedgwick County District Court via a video link from the jail, he answered “yes, sir” and “no, sir” in response to questions from the judge. Bond was set at $400,000.

He is due back in court March 16.
