ATCHISON, Kan. (AP) - Atchison police say they’ve arrested a suspect in the shooting death of an Atchison man in the parking lot of a convenience store.

Atchison police Chief Mike Wilson says Clinton, Missouri, police arrested the 19-year-old suspect Thursday while he was hiding in a wooded area near Clinton, which is south of Kansas City.

Wilson says 24-year-old Winston Downing died in the shooting Wednesday evening.

The chief says Downing and the suspect knew each other and police believe they know what happened before the shooting.

The suspect is being held in the Henry County, Missouri, jail pending extradition.
