WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Police say two armed men wearing masks killed one man and shot another after breaking into a Wichita apartment.

Lt. Ken Landwehr says it appears that the suspects were there to steal cash and valuables, but the victims apparently don't know the identities of the suspects.

A 44-year-old man was killed after being shot in the torso shortly after 1:45 a.m. on Thursday. Lt. Ken Landwehr said he died at an area hospital. The man's name has not been released.

A 47-year-old man was shot in the leg. Police found him walking outside.

Another man was pistol-whipped, but refused medical treatment at the scene.

Landwehr says investigators are looking for others who left the scene.
