WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A suspect in the April shooting death of an 18-year-old Wichita woman told a friend he chased down the car the woman was in and "unloaded" a semi-automatic rifle on the car following a fight at a local trailer park, according to the friend's testimony in court records.
Police detailed the statement in an arrest affidavit, the Wichita Eagle reported. The statement was reportedly given to investigators looking into the April 13 shooting that killed Aubrey Resendez. Prosecutors have charged Joshua Johnson, 32, of Wichita, with first-degree murder in her death.
Police say in the affidavit that investigators tracked a truck used in the attack to a Wichita home, where investigators found a friend of Johnson's. The friend told police that Johnson showed up at his home the day of the shooting holding an assault rifle and saying he had argued with two men at the trailer park where he lived. The friend said Johnson told him he then retrieved the rifle, chased the car the men were in and "unloaded on them."
Police have said Resendez was in the car with her boyfriend and brother at the time. The two men were not hurt in the shooting.
Johnson is being held on $300,000 bond.
