WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Wichita Police Department arrested a 25-year-old convicted felon in connection to a deadly shooting Monday. It happened in the 600 block of South Armour around 7:30 a.m.
Miguel Tapia, 27, was rushed to the hospital after he was found lying in the street Monday outside of a gray Nissan Pathfinder. He died from his injuries.
Police announced Wednesday morning they arrested Donovan Harrington on suspicion of second-degree murder, criminal possession of a firearm, and a Kansas Department of Corrections parole warrant.
Police said they have learned that Tapia was driving the Pathfinder with Harrington and two women when an argument broke out and he was shot. Harrington and the passengers ran from the Pathfinder and flagged down an unknowing driver to get a ride.
Police said the incident wasn’t random, and the case will be presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office.
Harrington has previously been convicted on several felony crimes and is currently on parole through the Kansas Department of Corrections.
