WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Wichita police say someone intentionally ignited a police car that had been parked on a residential street over the weekend.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/ICjYoFn) reports the officer who drives the car awoke shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday and found his cruiser engulfed in flames. Fire Department spokesman Lt. Kelly Zane says flammable liquid was present outside the vehicle, so there's no doubt it was set on purpose.

Police said it's possible the patrol car was targeted in retaliation for the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old boy by a police officer April 13. Eleven people have been wounded in officer-involved shootings in or near Wichita this year, including four who have died.

Zane said authorities have some significant leads, but no arrests have been made.
