WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Sedgwick County investigators say four people have been arrested in the death of a Wichita man whose body was discovered in a field earlier this week.

The body of 19-year-old Jordan Turner of Wichita was found Wednesday. Investigators said Friday that Turner was shot at least twice either on or near March 31 in the field where his body was discovered.

The arrests came after tips to Crime Stoppers.

Turner’s father reported him missing on April 6, after his son left their home March 30.

Authorities say all of the suspects are from Wichita. One has gang ties but police say Turner was not a gang member.

Turner was a star football player at Wichita South High, where he graduated in 2011.
