August 1, 2019

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A 26-year-old man shot by Wichita police in July is charged with making a criminal threat.

The Wichita Eagle reports Christian Joel Washington was charged last week with criminal threat and violating a protection order.

Police have said Washington displayed "aggressiveness" toward an officer before he was shot on July 14. They say the officer thought Washington had a gun but it was later determined that he was holding a pouch with a metal piece.

The confrontation occurred when officers responded to a woman's call saying her son was causing a domestic disturbance.
