WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita police say a 26-year-old man shot and killed his former girlfriend before killing himself.

Lt. Todd Ojile identified the victim as 24-year-old Emily Sonneman and the suspect as Dion Stevens. Police believe the two were arguing in an apartment Wednesday shortly before the shootings.

Police say the two had been previously involved in relationship, and Sonneman had gone to Stevens’ apartment to return items when they started arguing.

Police told KWCH (https://j.mp/29lqBS0) that Sonneman jumped from a second floor balcony, and Stevens chased her outside and shot her. Police say Sonneman was conscious when officers arrived and was able to identify Stevens as the suspect. She died later at a hospital.

Officers found Stevens dead in the apartment from a single gunshot wound.
