WICHITA, Kansas — Wichita police have arrested three involved in a shooting just north of downtown that caused schools to be locked down last Thursday.

It began at 13th and Broadway with a shooting near the Family Dollar just after 3 p.m.

Two of the people involved in the shooting sped away from the scene and were later involved in a crash with a bystander driving a truck at 11th and Waco.

Police say a tip to Crime Stoppers helped them find the suspects at a residence in the 1500 block of North Topeka Tuesday morning.

“Detectives ultimately got a search warrant for the residence in the 1500 block of North Topeka where they recovered multiple firearms. They arrested a 31-year-old Wichita resident which is the individual that ran from them on the weapons charges. They also developed another suspect who is a 29-year-old Wichita resident who was arrested by the Hays Police Department overnight in a motel,” said Lt. Randy Reynold, Wichita Police Department.

A 26-year-old woman was arrested for obstruction charges.
