Wichita police say a 27-year-old man accused of firing a shot inside a store had been confronted by an employee over a can of soda.
No one was injured in Monday morning's incident at a Burlington Coat Factory store. But the shot sent some of the estimated 20 employees and customers running outside, while others hid in a break room.
Wichita Deputy Police Chief Tom Stolz says a security guard asked the man if he was going to pay for a can of soda he was drinking. Stolz says the suspect pulled out a pistol and fired a shot at the guard from six to eight feet away.
Police using a stun gun quickly took the suspect into custody. He was taken to a hospital for observation.
