(Wichita Police Department)

An arrest has been made in connection to the fatal shooting of a US Airman in Kansas.

Wichita Police have arrested and charged Markeithen E. McClaine with murder and three counts of aggravated battery involving the use of firearms. He is being currently held in lieu of $500,000 bond.

McClaine is suspected to be the man who fatally shot Airman First Class Chancelor Williams, a 20-year-old aircraft fuel systems journeyman with the 22nd Maintenance Squadron at McConnell Air Force Base.

Williams was found fatally shot outside of a Wichita apartment complex on Saturday morning, where a party had turned violent. According to the Air Force Times, a woman and two men were also injured during the shooting.

According to investigators, shots were reported to have been fired following a disturbance, which led to one man getting out of his automobile and shooting into a crowd.

Col. Richard Tanner, commander of the 22nd Air Refueling Wing, expressed his condolences.

“We come together as a community to support our families and all those affected by this tragic incident,” he said.

The incident is under investigation.
