Two Killed at Dollar General Store in Wichita

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Police are seeking a 19-year-old suspect in a double-homicide at a Dollar General store in Wichita.

The Wichita Eagle reports that a warrant was filed Saturday charging the suspect with two counts of murder.

Police Lt. Scott Heimerman says 22-year-old store employee Zachary Hunt and 79-year-old customer Henry Harvey were fatally wounded around 8 p.m. Friday. Customers who arrived soon afterward called 911.

No other customers were believed to be in the store at the time of the shooting. But police said two other employees were in the rear of the store.

Heimerman says it’s not known if robbery was the motive in the shooting. He also wouldn’t say how the suspect was linked to the killing.

Heimerman says the suspect is considered to be “armed and dangerous.”
