Man arrested after shooting teen in the leg

East Arnold Shooting

Wichita police said they arrested a 25-year-old man in connection to a shooting that injured a 15-year-old boy. The boy was shot once in the leg early Wednesday morning. 

It happened in the 1500 block of East Arnold around 6. The boy was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Police located evidence of the shooting in the yard.

“A 15-year-old male and his sister reported that they were asleep inside of the residence and heard banging on the door, ” said officer Charley Davidson. “The male went to answer the door and multiple shots were fired into the door.”

The suspect was booked for aggravated battery and a weapons violation. 

Police said investigators were able to develop a suspect through leads in the case. The suspect is connected to another case back in February of 2017. 

Both cases will be presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney.
