ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a suspect in a deadly shooting in south-central Kansas.

Arkansas City police said in a Facebook post that officers rushed to a stretch of road around 9:30 p.m. Friday in response to the shooting. They found a vehicle there, and passenger Samuel Hutton was wounded. The 38-year-old was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

Police said officers later learned that Hutton had been shot in the suspect's home in Arkansas City. Officers searched throughout the night before arresting the suspect around 5:30 a.m. Saturday east of Arkansas City. He has been booked into jail on suspicion of second-degree murder.

No details have been released about what led up to the shooting.
