A shooting injured two 16-year-old boys in the northwest part of Wichita.

After midnight Thursday, police officers responded to a possible shooting call at a home in the 2400 block of N. Mascot, west of 23rd & Arkansas.

Officers arrived and found shell casings, as well as bullet strikes to a home.

Police said the boys arrived at an area hospital by a private vehicle. Both sustained non-life threatening gunshot wounds to their bodies.

The home that was struck was occupied by a 71-year-old woman and a 39-year-old man.

Police said it was not a random incident and is drug-related.
