WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The man police arrested in a fatal shooting at a downtown Wichita QuikTrip went before a judge Tuesday afternoon.
Police say 41-year-old Laroy West shot 39-year-old Will Robinson on Wednesday, May 5.
Robinson, a former Wichita police officer, worked as a security officer at the QuikTrip at Broadway and Murdock. Police say there was a disturbance in the store, and Robinson escorted West off the property. That’s when the shooting happened.
Police found and arrested West the next day.
West is charged with one count of murder in the second-degree – intentional and premeditated, four counts of aggravated assault, and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon by a felon. The charges are connected to the shooting of Robinson and to an incident police were investigating in March.
During the court appearance Tuesday afternoon, the judge set West’s next court date for May 20.
