Wichita Police Frustrated Over 4 Unsolved Killings

By  | 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Wichita police say the city's residents can feel good about having one of the lowest homicide totals in a decade last year with 16.

But it's the four that remain unsolved that have local law enforcement frustrated because nobody is stepping forward with information that could bring the killers to justice.

The Wichita Eagle reports two of the unsolved homicides were gang-related, while the other two involved gang members.

Two of the victims, 27-year-old James Gary Jr. and 25-year-old Kolby Hopkins, were shot in the midst of large crowds.

Aaron Bohannon was with Hopkins when he was fatally shot in the city's Old Town district. Bohannon says it's tough to start the healing process without knowing who is responsible for taking his friend's life.
