Wichita police say a man shot during an altercation at an apartment complex on N. Grove has died. 

29-year-old Marcus Collins was one of several people who were hurt in the incident on August 7.  He died Thursday, two weeks after the incident.

Police say Collins was one of three people who went to an apartment, which housed an illegal gambling operation, seeking justice.

Several shots were fired during incident, wounding Collins and three others. 

Police say they have a suspect in the case, but the District Attorney's Office will determine if the shooting was in self-defense.


Original story (August 7): Wichita police say they have identified the "main players" in an early morning shooting in northeast Wichita.

Police were called to Calvary Towers, an apartment complex in the 2600 block of North Grove, around 4:00 Thursday morning.

Capt. Troy Livingston said there was an exchange of gunfire inside one of the apartments. He would not say who fired the weapons.

Four men were shot multiple times. A 25-year-old suffered life-threatening injuries when he was shot in the upper chest and legs. A 28-year-old was shot in the leg. A 29-year-old was shot in the stomach and leg, and a 41-year-old man was shot in the right foot, arm and leg.

Capt. Livingston said the scene still needs to be processed and evidence collected from vehicles and the hospital where some of the victims arrived by private vehicle.

"When you have a scene like this, that is so violent, and everybody's injured, information comes slowly."

No arrests have been made, but detectives continue to interview eyewitnesses.

"Now, it's just the process of identifying who were the victims and who were the suspects. Could we develop more people? Maybe, it's just too early to tell now."

No motive on the shooting was given. Livingston said he to hopes to have more details ready to release at Friday's police briefing.
