WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A man has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a 42-year-old man in Wichita.

According to Wichita police Lt. James Espinoza, a 51-year-old man was arrested Wednesday night on suspicion of two counts of a felon in possession of a firearm in the killing of Dorce Pittman. He was also arrested on two drug-related offenses.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1hPmTDr ) reports Pittman approached a home with his ex-girlfriend and the suspect inside on Aug. 10.

Authorities say the woman refused to come outside and Pittman fired a shot at the back wall of the house. Police sat Pittman was shot in the head as he ran away from the home and died in the street.

Lt. Todd Ojile said the evidence in the case will be presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office on Monday.
