A 50-year-old Nigerian man identified as Kamilu Boyede, was reportedly killed in a deadly shooting incident on Wednesday morning, November 25.
This was confirmed by the Wichita Police Department in its announcement on Wednesday evening, as they revealed that the incident occurred at a home in South Ida.
According to reports, neighbors called the police around 11 a.m on Wednesday November 25, after seeing a door left open at a home in the 600 block of South Ida.
A statement by Captain Wendell Nicholson of the Wichita Police Department reads;
“We talked to some neighbors in the area and they indicated that this morning at about 12:30 they saw an unknown male walking in the area.
“They were concerned because earlier this morning they heard some shots fired, they didn’t call the police, but this morning when they walked past the residence in the 600 block of South Ida, they saw the door was ajar so they contacted 911.”
Through an investigation, police think the incident occurred sometime after midnight and before 3 a.m. They believe Boyede was a target and this wasn’t a random incident.
