Girl, 17, shot after suspect fired 10+ rifle rounds at vehicle


WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Wichita police say a 17-year-old girl was shot in southwest Wichita early Saturday.

Officers responded to a shooting in the 900 block of West 29th Street South at 4:53 a.m. Saturday, but they said that was where victims were found. After some investigation, police learned the shooting in the 1200 block of West 30th Street South.

They said a fight in that area between eight to 10 people led up to the shooting Saturday morning. The victim and two other people drove away from the scene. The victim has been released from the hospital.

An unknown suspect then fired as many as 10 gunshots at the car from a rifle, striking the victim. No one else in the car was hurt.

Police said they do not have a suspect in custody, attributing a stall in the investigation to “most of the people involved” being “very uncooperative.”

Wichita Police Sergeant Michael Lloyd said the victim is in stable condition in the hospital.

They were on the scene several hours to investigate.

If anyone has any information on this case, they can call WPD detectives at 316-268-4407, Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111, or the See Something Say Something hotline at 316-519-2282.
