Man wounded in shooting in northeast Wichita

November 01, 2018 - 1:30 pm

Police were called to the Valero store near 21st and Grove at about 12:15 Thursday morning to the report of a shooting. 

Officers found the victim several blocks away near 15th and Hillside.  The 50 year-old man had a gunshot wound to his left hip. 

Officer Charlie Davidson says the incident stemmed from an disturbance between another man and a female suspect. After the exchange between the two, the woman got into a small truck or SUV with three other men inside.

One of the men fired several at the 48 year-old man who was not injured, but one of the bullets struck the 50 year-old.

Police have been able to identify a possible suspect in the case. 

The victim drove to a friends home on the way to admit himself in the hospital. That is where E-M-S caught up with him after officers saw him leave the scene. 

Davidson says this is not believed to be a random incident, and the investigation continues.
