WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Law enforcement authorities say a Sedgwick county sheriff's deputy shot and killed a suspect fleeing from a robbery at a credit union in Wichita.

Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter says dispatchers received the robbery call early Wednesday. A deputy in the area saw a man running from the building.

Easter says police are still investigating but he says the suspect had a weapon. The deputy shot the suspect, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Easter would not say whether the Credit Union of America branch was open at the time. Its website says the branch does not offer lobby services, and its drive-through window opens at 7:30 a.m.
