WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Update Oct. 20: On Thursday, District Attorney Marc Bennett provided KWCH a statement on the status of Morrison’s case:

“The case was investigated by the Office of the Sedgwick County Sheriff and presented to the office of the District Attorney last week. Insufficient evidence was found to establish the elements necessary to prove felony charges.”

The Wichita Police Department said one of its recruit officers was arrested on Wednesday following a domestic violence disturbance.

The police department said around 6:50 p.m., officers were called out to the incident in the 1700 block of South Beech Street. They arrived and made contact with a 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman, both of Wichita.

Officers learned that man was involved in a verbal argument with a 21-year-old man, identified as Recruit Officer Trevon Morrison, with the Wichita Police Department.

For transparency purposes, the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office was called to investigate and booked Morrison for criminal threat. He has been employed and assigned to the training academy since July 25, 2022, police said.
