WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 32-year-old Wichita man faces about 2 ½ years in prison for a fatal shooting in June.

The Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office says Justin Rourke also was ordered to pay about $12,000 in restitution in connection with the June 11 shooting death of 41-year-old Roman Padilla.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1Tcxu8M ) that police have said Rourke pulled a handgun and shot Padilla and a dog after he and others went to a house to retrieve the pit bull puppy. Padilla later died at a Wichita hospital.

Rourke has said he fired in self-defense. He turned himself into police after the shooting and pleaded guilty in August to involuntary manslaughter.
