WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Police and emergency crews responded to a shooting in southeast Wichita Wednesday afternoon.
The officers got the call of the shooting around 2:45 p.m. It happened in the parking lot of Fox Run Apartments in the 1100 block of South Webb Road.
“When they arrived, they did find one male on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound,” said Lt. Rick Moscicki, Wichita Police Department. “He was transported to a local hospital in critical condition.”
Police said the victim on the ground was 17 years old. A second victim, 18, showed up with a gunshot wound at one of the hospitals. He was treated and released.
On Thursday, police said the investigation revealed two suspects and two victims arranged to meet in the apartment complex parking lot for some kind of meeting.
Police said one suspect arrived at the apartment complex parking lot driving a newer-model white Mustang, and the second unknown suspect arrived at the same time driving a grey Buick. The two victims walked up to the Buick and got into the vehicle, occupied by one suspect.
During the meeting inside the Buick, a disturbance ensued, and the suspect seated in the Mustang exited the car and fired multiple shots at the victims, striking them and causing their injuries. Both suspects then fled in the vehicles they were driving when they arrived.
Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (316) 267-2111.
This is the second shooting call police have responded to this afternoon. The first one was in east Wichita on Green.
