JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Authorities in northeast Kansas are investigating a shooting that left one person dead and another critically wounded.
The Riley County police department says a suspect has been arrested in the shooting, which occurred early Saturday at a National Guard Armory.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/OBYBHa) that the incident had no ties to the military. Kansas National Guard spokeswoman Sharon Watson said the armory was rented out to a private group for an event Friday night and the Guard was not involved.
Police say 25-year-old Antonio Maxwell of Junction City was killed in the shooting, and 30-year-old Jamaica Chism was wounded. She's also from Junction City.
Police also said they believe a number of people witnessed the shooting in the parking lot and are being asked to come forward with information.
