Man killed in Wichita shooting; girlfriend questioned

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police say a woman is being held on suspicion of second-degree murder after her boyfriend was shot to death while they argued in a vehicle.

Police Lt. Jeff Gilmore says 40-year-old Richard J. Hamm Jr. was shot inside a car being driven by his girlfriend on Sunday just west of downtown Wichita.

Gilmore says the couple had an ongoing argument for several days when they left their home Sunday and began driving.

He says at some point the girlfriend shot Hamm. She then called police and was sitting near the car when officers arrived.

Hamm’s death is Wichita’s second homicide of 2017.
