One person is hospitalized after a shooting at an apartment complex in east Wichita Sunday afternoon.

Around 12:30 PM, Wichita Police responded to a shooting call at the Brentwood Apartments in the 6600 block of East Harry, just east of Woodlawn.

Wichita Police Sgt. Dan Binkley says officers contacted a 17-year-old male who had a gunshot wound to his leg that was non-life threatening. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Investigators say the victim was not a resident of the apartments, but was there visiting acquaintances. Sgt. Binkley says officers are still trying to determine the circumstances that led up to the shooting. Information on a suspect and description has not been given at this time.
