WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a 19-year-old man has been charged in a deadly shooting during a botched Wichita drug deal.

Andrew Bull made his first court appearance Thursday in Sedgwick County District Court. He is jailed on $100,000 bond on charges of first-degree murder and distribution of marijuana in the death of 23-year-old Charles Hawkins. Public defender Mark Rudy didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press seeking comment.

Police say Hawkins was killed last week when he pulled out a gun and attempted to rob Bull during a drug deal. Police say Bull also was armed and shot Hawkins, who died after being taken to a hospital.
