Wichita police seek tips in Old Town shootings

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Police in Wichita are asking the public for tips in a weekend shooting that left one man dead and six others wounded in the Old Town entertainment district.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1b7rRXl ) police on Monday identified the victim as 25-year-old Kolby Hopkins. Police Lt. Randy Reynolds says Hopkins died after being shot in the head around 2 a.m. Sunday outside a club.

The wounded were in their 20s and 30s. All are expected to recover.

Hundreds of people were in a nearby parking lot when the shooting began. Police were able to interview a few of them, but they’re hoping others will come forward with cellphone videos.

Investigators believe one person fired multiple rounds amid an argument in the street.
