WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita police have arrested a 29-year-old man in the shooting that left two men dead outside a Wichita bar.

Authorities say a tip to Crime Stoppers via a cell phone text message identified the suspect and his address.

Wichita Crime Commission Director Gordon Bassham says police took the suspect into custody without incident Monday afternoon. He was booked on two counts of second-degree murder, aggravated battery, and felon in possession of a firearm.

Authorities say 28-year-old Andrew Smith and 32-year-old Quentin Brown died in the early Saturday shooting outside a bar called The Place.

Two other people were wounded. A 25-year-old was released from a hospital after being treated for a gunshot to the leg. Officials say a 36-year-old man is in serious condition after being shot in the stomach.
