COLWICH, Kan. (AP) _ A suburban Wichita man is accused of pointing a shotgun at a FedEx driver who delivered a package to the wrong house.

The Sedgwick County sheriff's office says the incident happened around noon Tuesday near Colwich, in the northwestern part of the county.

The driver told deputies he had just left the package at a home when a man opened the door, pointed a shotgun at him and told him to come and take it away. The driver obeyed, then called 911.

Deputies arrested the 71-year-old man and booked him into jail on suspicion of aggravated assault.

Sheriff's Lt. Dave Mattingly says the package should have been delivered to the house next door, but authorities still aren't sure why the resident reacted to the mix-up with a firearm.
