WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Police say a Wichita restaurant owner who was shot and killed over the weekend probably was targeted.

Chuck Giles, owner of the Neighbors Bar and Grill, was found dead Friday night outside of his home. He had been shot several times.

The suspect or suspects have not been arrested.

Police Capt. Brent Allred said Monday investigators believe Giles was targeted for robbery.

The Wichita Eagle reports police believe one or more people approached Giles after he pulled into his driveway and fired at him. It is not known of Giles was followed home from the restaurant.

Money was stolen but Allred refused to say whether any other property was missing.

Gile's death is Wichita's 19th homicide of the year.
