It started shortly before noon Monday with the report of a theft, a seemingly routine call.
It ended with a Sedgwick County sheriff's deputy dead from gunshot wounds and a suspect dead after exchanging gunfire with officers.
It was too early Monday night to say how and why it occurred, Sheriff Bob Hinshaw said.
The slain deputy, Brian S. Etheridge, was an "excellent deputy," Hinshaw said. He had spent a little more than a year with the Sheriff's Office. He was 26.
He leaves a wife and a small child.
The 27-year-old suspect's name was not released.
Etheridge's wounding drew a massive response by scores of officers from state, federal and local agencies around the Wichita area
