In connection with a nightclub shooting in Kansas earlier this month that left nearly a dozen people injured, police have detained a second suspect.
According to Wichita police, a 23-year-old man was detained on suspicion of attempted murder, assault, and battery on Tuesday night. He is one of three people being held for their alleged involvement in the July 2 shooting at City Nightz in downtown Wichita, in which nine people were shot and two others were trampled in the chaos. No one passed away.
According to police, Marc Bennett, the district attorney for Sedgwick County, has received information about the investigation and will decide whether to file charges against the suspect. When contacted for comment on Wednesday, Bennett did not react right away.
Unless they have been charged, those who have been arrested for crimes are normally not named.
The shooting has prompted charges against two other Wichita males. Ameir King-Ingram, 19, and John Houze, 27, are accused of many violent assaults and gun-related offences. Additionally, King-Ingram is accused of aggravated violence. Both are being held under a bail for $500,000.
A guy from the St. Louis region was detained on July 3, but prosecutors eventually found that he had fired his gun in self-defence after being shot at by others.
Police reported that the seven men and two women who suffered from gunshot wounds varied in age from 22 to 34. A 30-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man were the two victims of the trample.
Nearly 400,000 people live in the city of Wichita, which is located about 320 kilometres (200 miles) southwest of Kansas City, Missouri.
