A robbery suspect has died, and two others have been arrested.
The incident happened late Friday night, when three suspects tried to commit a robbery in the 2000 block of W. 2nd Street. The intended victims, a man and a woman, locked themselves inside their car.
One of the supsects began banging on the car window with a long-barrelled gun; he had his finger on the trigger, the gun went off, and the bullet accidentally hit the gunman in the head.
The other two suspects put the wounded man in the back of a station wagon, then led police on a chase through the streets of north-central Wichita, with speeds at times reaching 70 miles per hour on 13th Street north of downtown.
Police arrested two suspects; the man who accidentally shot himself, 25-year-old Paul Broyer, died from his injuries. All three robbery suspects were out of jail on parole.
