WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Wichita police said a 55-year-old man is dead after a shooting late Friday night.

The shooting occurred outside the victim’s home in the 2100 block of West Columbine around 10:20 p.m.

Police arrived and found Chuck Giles with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after. Officers are still investigating the shooting.

“We believe Mr. Giles left his place of business, arrived at his residence when the suspect or suspects approached him and fired several rounds and removed some money from him,” said Capt. Brent Allred, Wichita Police Department.

Police believe Giles was targeted and that more than one person could be involved.

“We are not for sure if he was followed. We are going to try to track video evidence. That is going to take several days,” added Capt. Allred.

Giles was the owner of Neighbors Restaurant.

Police said they interviewed several employees and family members after the shooting.
