The Chase County Sheriff’s Office was contacted late Sunday morning regarding an incident during which a gun was reportedly fired in a residential neighborhood along West Wichita Street.

According to Chase County Sheriff Kevin Mueller, the investigation into the incident remains ongoing. He expects to have full documentation of the incident ready to submit to the County Attorney’s Office in the near future.

Due to the ongoing investigation, full details of the incident could not be released. Mueller characterized the incident as a domestic dispute which allegedly resulted in bullets being fired repeatedly at an unoccupied vehicle owned by the couple involved in the dispute.

The alleged incident took place near the home of friends of the woman who the sheriff said is seeking a separation from her husband.
