Gang member sentenced to 55 years in Wichita killing

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita gang member has been sentenced to more than 55 years in prison for killing another man.

The Wichita Eagle reports that 31-year-old Emmanuel Reed was sentenced Wednesday for second-degree murder and criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in the death of 30-year-old Bretodd Williams.

Prosecutors say an eyewitness told police that he saw the men talking before hearing “what sounded like fireworks exploding.” An autopsy report says Williams was shot several times, including in the left cheek, chest and back. Authorities arrested Reed near a Payless shoe store in the area after police say he was seen going into a nearby QuikTrip in one set of clothes and leaving in another.

Police said previously that both men were documented gang members and knew one another.
