Man shot to death during attempted break-in identified

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a 27-year-old man after an attempted break-in at a home.

Capt. Greg Pollock says officers found a man dead Monday in front of a home near Haysville where a resident reported an attempted break-in. The man was identified Tuesday as Cody Don Reid of Wichita.

Pollock says shortly after the attempted break-in, the homeowner heard gunshots and saw the man who tried to get into the home lying in the yard and a car speeding away.

Pollock says the residents weren’t involved in the shooting and were not hurt.

Officers are searching for two vehicles of interest: One is a dark-colored sedan, late 1980s or early 1990s model. The other is a silver 4-door Chrysler Cirrus with Kansas tag 497-GZG.
