WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – A 23-year-old woman is in the hospital following a shooting at a downtown Wichita QuikTrip early Friday.
Wichita police said the security guard attempted to remove the woman for trespassing when she drew a weapon and pointed at the security guards. The guard gave multiple commands to get the woman to drop the weapon, but she refused, and the security guard fired her gun, striking the woman.
The woman is expected to survive. She was transported to the hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and will be booked into jail upon her release.
Several witnessed the shooting and were interviewed by police.
Police said the woman’s weapon was determined to be a pellet gun.
The store is the same one where a customer shot and killed a security guard back in May.
