WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita police say one of three men shot by police officers has died.

The shooting occurred early Friday at a home in southwest Wichita. No officers were wounded.

Deputy Police Chief Terri Moses says police are looking for a fourth suspect who got away.

KFDI reports (http://bit.ly/HFid0b ) that Moses says a woman called 911 to report men with guns were in the house. When officers arrived, shots were exchanged in the backyard of the house.

It's not known if the wounded men were trying to rob the residents of the home, or if any of the wounded lived there.

The two wounded men were taken to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis. Spokeswoman Maria Loving was unable to provide a condition and referred questions to police.
