EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) - Police in east-central Kansas’ Emporia are investigating the shooting death of a 38-year-old woman in an apartment building.

The Emporia Gazette (https://bit.ly/2nmmprt ) reports that Mahogany Brooks died at the scene of the shooting late Thursday near Emporia State University.

Police say a 30-year-old man was taken into custody for questioning.

The Gazette says Brooks’ death is first homicide in 25,000-resident Emporia since April 2013, when 25-year-old Adrian Peralta died five days after being shot. Gabino Ruiz-Ascencio later was convicted of first-degree murder in September 2015.
