Police: Teen injured in shooting with possible drug deal


WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Wichita police are investigating a shooting outside a Dillons on 21 Street and Amidon.

The shooting happened on Tuesday around 7 p.m. in a parking lot.

Police arrived to find several shell casings and damage to a car in the lot. They later learned that a 20-year-old man, identified by police as Rico Brown, and the 16-year-old boy, who was shot, arrived at the hospital.

“The investigation revealed the 16 year old, Brown, and an 18-year-old male met a group of other males in the parking lot regarding an alleged drug deal,” said officer Charley Davidson, Wichita police spokesman. “During the incident, multiple shots were fired. It struck the 16-year-old male.”

The teen had non-life-threatening wounds. The investigation into shooting is ongoing. Police said no arrests have been made.

He was booked on suspicion of aggravated battery and criminal possession of a firearm. Davidson also said another woman, 20-year-old Katrina Shaw, was booked on suspicion of aggravated battery in that case.
