No injuries after gunman fires in Wichita store

August 13, 2012


— Police say a 27-year-old man fired at least one shot inside a Burlington Coat Factory in Wichita after a store employee confronted him over his suspicious behavior.

No injuries were reported.

But employees and customers fled the store in fear Monday after a security guard alerted them that a shooter was in the store.

Police Capt. Hassan Ramzah says the suspect suffered minor injuries while resisting arrest and has been taken to a Wichita hospital. Police did not fire any shots.

Authorities recovered the shooter's handgun.

Ramzah says the suspect fired a round at a loss prevention officer after the employee became suspicious of his behavior and confronted him.
