A shooting Friday afternoon at 21st and Meridian sent a Wichita man to the hospital in critical condition. Police are still trying to figure out exactly what happened and asking for your help to catch the shooters.
The 911 call came in shortly after noon. Residents say they could hear the shots. Police found the victim on the ground near the road toward the back of the complex. They're unsure if he was on public property or a part of the apartment complex grounds.
Finding the victim was the easy part.
"It was difficult for us to obtain a full statement from the victim," said Lt. Brian White of the Wichita Police Department. He says the 25-year-old man was critically hurt, needed to get to the hospital quickly, and didn't speak any English.
"So it took us a little bit of time to get a Spanish speaker to him so we could get a full statement from him," White said.
That's something they're still working on because he needed surgery immediately and couldn't talk for long.
Police say they do know they're looking for two suspects, a man and a woman, in a truck that should be easy to identify.
"A white quadcab pick-up truck with a window broken on the driver's side," described White.
Officers say if you see the pick-up, call 91, don't approach it. They still haven't found the gun used in the shooting.
Residents at Pelican Point Apartments, 2150 N. Meridian, say they've had increasing problems over the last couple of weeks. But police say it's safer than it has been in the past.
"In the past we've had to work some things over here, but in the recent past we have not," said White. "I would say this is an isolated incident."
Eyewitness News spoke with several residents but no one wanted to talk on camera. They said they heard three shots and they're worried the suspects may actually live here. Police say they're looking into that.
