WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Some Wichita apartment dwellers are getting their first look at the damage caused last week when their neighbor became engaged in a 32-hour standoff with police before being killed in a shootout.

Justin Zoucha lives under the two units of the complex where police fired tear gas and a water cannon last Thursday in an attempt to get Jared Woosypiti to come out. The Wichita Eagle reports mold has grown on the walls of Zoucha's living room and the smell is almost unbearable.

Zoucha says almost all of his belongings were ruined, but he doesn't have renter's insurance and isn't sure the city will pitch in to help.

The standoff began July 10, shortly after Woosypiti fired multiple rounds inside a Wichita Kmart while trying to rob the pharmacy.
