WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A man is in critical condition after being shot by a sheriff’s deputy in Wichita.

According to Sedgwick County sheriff’s Lt. Lin Dehning, a deputy was investigating someone who seemed suspicious Tuesday afternoon when the deputy fired shots and the man was struck in the abdomen.

The man was transported to a hospital.

Dehning said someone called authorities about a suspicious person around 4:20 p.m. Dehning says the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office is still trying to determine whether someone in the area of the incident made the report or if the deputy investigated on his own.

An investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
