WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — Two Wichita police officers are being treated for injuries not considered life-threatening after being shot in the early hours of Christmas Day.

One officer was shot in the leg. The other was shot in the arm. Both were being treated at a hospital.

A tactical team was called and the apartment was evacuated. The suspect was later found dead of what police called a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Police say no officers fired any shots.
