Wichita police Capt. Brent Allred talks about a weekend shooting at a club operating after hours that claimed the life of 19-year-old Sonja Brown of Wichita.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A man suspected of fatally shooting an innocent bystander last month during an argument at an after-hours Kansas club is in custody.

Twenty-five-year-old Terrance Nigel Johnson was extradited Tuesday to Sedgwick County, Kansas, from Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, where he was arrested last week.

He is jailed on $500,000 bond on suspicion of first-degree murder in the Dec. 2 shooting of 19-year-old Sonya Brown at the 511 Club in Wichita. Police say Johnson had been involved in a disturbance with someone else and that Brown was an unintended victim.
