WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Police are asking for the public’s help finding four suspects while detectives investigate a shooting that injured two teenagers.

Around 1 a.m. Monday, officers responded to a call for a drive-by shooting near 27th Street South and Osage. At the scene, they found a 17-year-old boy with a bullet graze wound. His injury was considered minor.

At an area hospital, officers spoke to a 19-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his body. His injuries were found to be non-life threatening.
