Teen critically wounded in SE Wichita shooting
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Wichita police are investigating a shooting that left a teen severely injured.
Officers were dispatched to the area of Harry and Doreen (west of Harry and Rock Road) a little before 1 p.m. for the shooting. They found a 14-year-old boy with a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital with critical and life-threatening injuries.
Police believe the teen was shot at a home on South Shiloh, less than two miles away. A silver SUV then brought the teen from Shiloh to Harry and Doreen.
Investigators are still trying to determine what led up to the shooting.
As police investigate, Eyewitness News spoke with a neighbor who said this isn’t the first time law enforcement has responded to an incident at the house on South Shiloh. They shared video from an incident that happened a few months ago.
But after what happened there Monday, neighbor Dominque Jacobs said it makes her feel “kind of worried,”
“I mean, I wouldn’t say I’m paranoid, but overall, it’s a scary thing to think about, knowing it was right across the street,” she said.
