One man is dead following a shooting in southeast Wichita.

Officers were called to the 1500 block of S. Parkwood, near Harry and Edgemoor, around 4:30 p.m. for the shooting call.

Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay says they found a young man who had died from an apparent gunshot wound.

Ramsay said officers will continue canvassing the neighborhood and talking to witnesses about what happened. He said due to a language barrier they had yet to develop suspect information.

"There are over a hundred languages spoken in the city. And frequently, it's challenging to us as we try to take reports and serve people like we want to when there's that language barrier," he said.

Ramsay said the department does have several interpreters that it is working with to gain more information about what led up to the man's death.
