Wichita council approves second settlement after standoff

WICHITA, Kansas The Wichita City Council has approved a second settlement in at least a dozen claims filed by tenants of an apartment complex damaged in a police standoff in July.

The council on Tuesday approved a $25,500 settlement for one of the apartments damaged in the July 11 standoff with 24-year-old Jared Woosypiti.

He was killed in a gunfight with police.

The city faces at least a dozen claims for a total of more than $100,000 for damages caused by police during the 32-hour standoff.

Officers fired tear gas, detonated explosive devices and shot water into the apartments. Six apartments were damaged.

The city pays such claims out of its self-insurance fund.
