WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Sedgwick County’s top prosecutor has cleared five Wichita officers and county sheriff’s deputies of wrongdoing in the fatal 2019 shooting of a Wichita man outside his home.
Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett said Tuesday that the officers are “immune from prosecution” in the May 27, 2019, death of 49-year-old Robert Sabater.
Police say Sabater twice called police to his home in the hours before he was killed, claiming people were outside.
Bennett said officers returned a third time and fatally shot Sabater after he had fired a gun and pointed it at police.
The investigation showed officers fired 46 rounds at Sabater.
