WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — The Wichita Police Department (WPD) said two people were critically injured following a shooting that took place at a grocery store located in northwest Wichita.
It happened in the parking lot of the 21st and Maize Road Dillons around 2:20 p.m on Thursday, Feb. 10.
Police say that the shooting is not related to the store in any way, and the store remained open.
Both WPD and the Wichita Fire Department were dispatched to the Dillons parking lot, where they located an 18-year-old male with a gunshot wound and a 21-year-old male with multiple gunshot wounds.
Police believe a fight broke out, and several shots were fired.
WPD then went to a nearby neighborhood to search for suspects. It was initially believed that three males fled into the neighborhood, while one male remained by the vehicles. However, it has since been discovered that only two males fled into the neighborhood, and one male remained by the vehicles.
The 18-year-old male who fled into the neighborhood returned to the parking lot, where he contacted Fire Department personnel.
Wichita fire crews attended to the two men with gunshot wounds before they were transported to a local hospital and were expected to survive, according to police.
WPD is still actively working to locate the other suspect involved, identified as a 28-year-old male.
