A teenager was shot and killed in the southeast part of Wichita; it happened before 1:00 a.m. Sunday near Lincoln & Oliver.

Police officers responded to the report of shots fired in the 800 block of S. Pershing; at that location, they found a 17-year-old boy in a back yard who had died from multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was classified by Wichita police as an active runaway, and he had been staying at a nearby residence.

There was some sort of an altercation between the victim and another person; investigators continue to search for more information, and a suspect.

This is Wichita's 10th homicide case in the first 12 weeks of the year.
