WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A 24-year-old woman is dead after being shot while walking in a south Wichita neighborhood with her husband, a documented gang member.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1g5QpD1 ) reports the couple were walking at 11:45 p.m. Tuesday when several shots were fired toward them. Police Lt. Todd Ojile says both the man and the woman began running, but one of the shots hit the woman in the head.

The woman is identified in a police document as Nichole Saldana, who was pronounced dead at the scene shortly before midnight.

Ojile says one person was detained for questioning but no arrests have been made. Police believe more than one weapon was fired at the couple.

He says the couple lived a few blocks from where the shooting occurred.
