The suspect in this morning's fatal shooting of George Tiller is in custody, according to emergency dispatchers.
Authorities have yet to release more information about the arrest. Wichita police have scheduled a 4 p.m. news conference to discuss the case.
Police had said they were looking for white male who was driving a 1990s powder blue Ford Taurus with Kansas license plate 225 BAB. The vehicle is registered to an owner in Merriam, which is in the Kansas City area.
Wichita police Capt. Brent Allred said that several law enforcement agencies -- including the FBI and the KBI -- have been called in to help with the case.
"This is going to be a larger search than probably maybe just Wichita that we're looking for this individual," Allred said. "So we've got the resources coming in to help us with this investigation."
Allred said that no one else was injured in the shooting. He would not say how many shots were fired. He said it's unclear whether the shooter exchanged any words with the victim.
"We've got several people going downtown," Allred said. "This is going to be an investigation that is going to take a little while to get some of that information out."

Maybe I missed something, but I haven’t seen any “fools” celebrating it.
George Tiller was a despicable human being, and I don’t see any point in pretending otherwise, which would be sheer hypocrisy.
But that doesn’t make it right to shoot him, and I haven’t seen anyone saying that.
Wouldn’t it be odd if the killer really intended to kill anyone, just as long as it was done in a church...and he didn’t even know who Tiller was?
More now than ever, these are the threads that will garner attention from unwelcome prying eyes, you never know who is reading them and for what purpose
Again just a cautious thought :)
I’d have said, “hats off to the cops,” if they had been on time to stop Tiller from murdering babies and forever damaging young girls upon whom Planned Parenthood and Liberals prey.
Yes, caution is advised.
The actions of Republican Congressmen should be followed.
Let’s NOT risk upsetting anyone
Vengence belongs to God, not some yahoo off the street.
“Vengence belongs to God, not some yahoo off the street.”
Two hours ago, Kos had a compilation of freeper reactions to Tiller’s murder.
The church in question is part of the liberal mainline ELCA. There were probably no theological issues with his line of work, and he probably gave well at collection time.
You have reason for concern. Check out the Kos link.
Naturally there is no pain...for the “surgeon.”
Was I? I’ll watch that, thanks.
I was being hyperbolic with “celebrate” but on the first thread there were more than a few saying this was a “good thing”.
Senseless acts abound to today’s world.
On the other hand, if it turns out the guy who killed Tiller is a Muslim we’ll get to see some very interesting media spin on this one, eh?
I feel the same.
