SEDGWICK COUNTY— Law enforcement authorities are investigating a shooting and asking for help to identify suspects.
Just after 6p.m. Wednesday, police responded to a shooting at a residence in the 1300 block of north Estelle in Wichita, according to officer Charley Davidson.
Upon arrival officers located a 15-year-old girl in the street with a gunshot wound in the back. She was transported to an area hospital in serious condition.
Investigators determined there were five juvenile boys having a bb-gun war outside the residence. Six other individuals were at a nearby residence. It was reported that a silver car drove up the block and an unknown individual from the vehicle shot a gun multiple times and hit the girl. She is expected to make a full recovery, according to Davidson.
He also said the shooting was not random. Police believe it was gang related. One of the juveniles is a gang member and possibly an intended target, according to Davidson.
Police continue questioning individuals to determine what happened. Davidson did not release the girl’s name.
Anyone with information is asked call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 316.267.2111.
