ULYSSES, Kan. (KSNW) — A 14-year-old boy from Ulysses is in a Wichita hospital after being shot in the face Wednesday evening.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Ulysses Police Department are investigating how it happened.

When officers arrived, they found the victim suffering from a gunshot to his face.

The police department requested KBI’s assistance, and KBI agents and the Crime Scene Response Team responded.
