Police are looking for two suspects involved in a drive-by shooting in northeast Wichita Monday night.

The incident occurred shortly after 10 p.m. in the 1200 block of North Dellrose, which is near 13th and Oliver. Several shots were fired at a house from a passing car, Lt. Joe Schroeder said.

Bullets hit the house and a car parked in the driveway, though no injuries were reported. Six people were in the house, one in the front yard and two in the parked car.

Three shots hit the house and one hit the car, Schroeder said. A police officer patrolling in the area heard the shots, but the suspects’ car was gone by the time he arrived.

The victims were unable to provide a detailed description of the suspects, though they said both men in the dark-colored Impala fired shots, Schroeder said.
