    DODGE CITY A Dodge City man died and a Minneola man was wounded in a double shooting Monday in the Arkansas River bed.
    Steven Holt, 35, and Tanner Brunson, 21, were taken to Western Plains Medical Complex for treatment. Holt died from his injuries a short time later.
    A hospital spokesman said Tuesday he was not allowed to release information about Brunson's condition.
    A witness to the shooting notified police at 6:13 p.m. Monday, shortly after it occurred, Police Chief John Ball said. When officers from the police department and the Ford County Sheriff's Office arrived at the scene, they discovered the two men suffering from gunshot wounds.
    Holt had been shot twice in the chest, and Brunson was wounded in the back, right arm and right side, Ball said.
    The two men had been riding in a truck in the river bed, but they were standing outside the truck when they were shot.
    Ball declined to comment further on the circumstances of the shooting including whether police had identified any suspects until the investigation is further along.
    He did say that police believe a handgun was used in the shooting, but it had not been recovered as of Tuesday afternoon.
    The police department's investigation into the shooting continues. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the police department at 225-8126 or CrimeStoppers at either 227-STOP (7867) or toll free at 1-877-424-4414.

    More to come for sure. At least there seems to be a witness.

    For sure an investigation is in the process.

    I heard a rumor that the shooter had turned himself in. I also heard there were teenagers present. Have not heard anything about motive.

    There were rumors suggesting that the shooter was a CC instructor. I have found out that he isn't, may have been a martial arts instructor. Then this came out.

    DODGE CITY A Dodge City man was arrested Thursday on suspicion of shooting two men earlier this week in the Arkansas River bed.
    Authorities arrested Samuel Bonilla, 40, on a warrant alleging attempted second-degree murder and voluntary manslaughter, according to a news release from the Dodge City Police Department.
    The news release did not provide additional details of the arrest or a possible motive for the shooting.
    Bonilla is accused of shooting Dodge City resident Steven Holt and Minneola resident Tanner Brunson Monday evening in the Arkansas River bed, east of the 14th Avenue bridge. Holt was shot twice in the chest, and Brunson suffered wounds to his back, right arm and right side.
    Both men were taken to Western Plains Medical Complex, where Holt died a short time later.
