WICHITA, Kan. (AP)-- - Authorities have arrested three people in the weekend shooting death of a man in a motel parking lot in Wichita in a case that police say is likely drug-related.

The Wichita Eagle reports that jail records show that police arrested 49-year-old Bryant Damon Bailey, 52-year-old Robyn Leah Murphy and 60-year-old Annette Williams on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of 55-year-old Timothy Austin. They haven’t been formally charged.

Austin was found wounded early Sunday at the Countryside Inn. Wichita police Capt. Brent Allred says Austin had lived at the motel off and on, as well as other places around town. Allred says he got into a fight in the parking lot and was shot once in his upper body while standing outside of a vehicle. He died at a hospital.
