 Wichita Police Lt. Todd Ojile says the arrest of the man suspected of killing Daniel Flores, 25, followed a Crime Stoppers tip and several interviews. He was arrested  at about 10 Wednesday night in the 3900 block of North Woodlawn.

 
The suspect stabbed himself one time in the stomach when approached by officers, and was taken to a Wichita hospital where he was admitted for observation. Upon his release he’ll be booked into the Sedgwick County jail on felony murder.
