WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – A 19-year-old man is dead after being shot around midnight in southeast Wichita.
Wichita police said officers were conducting a traffic stop on a separate matter in the QuikTrip parking lot at Harry and Oliver.
A Dodge Avenger pulled into the lot with people screaming for help. Officers rendered aid to the victim who was shot; however, he later died. Police identified him as Quantin McIntosh Jr. of Wichita.
Wichita police said that an argument between the suspect and McIntosh occurred in the Burger King drive-thru on East Harry. McIntosh followed the suspect’s dark-colored 4 door sedan out of the parking lot on Harry. At about Harry and Roosevelt, the suspect shot at McIntosh’s car.
“Both vehicles stopped in the street, and suspect’s vehicle fired multiple shots into McIntosh’s vehicle fatally injuring him,” said Capt. Jason Stephens, Wichita Police Department.
Police are looking at video from nearby traffic cameras and area businesses to identify a possible suspect.
