Three charged in party bus shooting


The Wichita Police Department announced Monday that three teenage suspects have been charged in reference to a shooting at a party bus on June 9th.

A 19-year-old female was injured in the shooting. She was treated at an area hospital and released.

Through the investigation, Wichita Police Department investigators identified three suspects and have presented their case to the DA’s office.

The three charges are:

  • A 16-year-old man charged with criminal discharge of a firearm into an occupied vehicle, causing great bodily harm; and a juvenile in possession of a firearm;
  • A 17-year-old man charged with carrying a concealed firearm
  • An 18-year-old man charged with a felony, in possession of a firearm.

The shooting happened on Saturday, June 9, near Central and Nims by the Keeper of the Plains. The party bus was dropping off passengers when a 16-year-old outside the bus fired multiple shots at the bus striking the woman.

A silver Honda Civic with three passengers was also struck by one bullet. No individuals were injured in the car.

Police say this was not a random incident.
