WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Update 9 a.m. Police say the shooting this morning that killed one and gravely injured another was a murder-suicide. The second victim was pronounced dead at the hospital following the incident.

The incident happened in the 800 block of W. Mount Vernon. Police responded to a shooting call there after a 911 caller from out of state told dispatchers that a woman at the home, identified as 46-year-old Tuyen Nguyen had been shot by her husband 71-year-old Bay Le. Le called the out-of-state 911 caller beforehand to tell him what he was going to do.

Officers forced entry into the home, where Nguyen and Lee both had gunshot wounds. Le was pronounced dead at the scene, while Nguyen was taken to the hospital, where she died. It is believed that Le shot Nguyen and then himself.

One person was killed and another was unresponsive in a shooting on Mt. Vernon between Broadway and Seneca late Thursday night.

The call came in around 11:45, and police responding found the two victims. Dispatchers confirmed one death and another victim who was unresponsive when police arrived.
