Shots fired during robbery at party

  • Published Sunday, Dec. 23, 2012, at 2:37 p.m.

A house party attended by juveniles was underway in the 1300 block of South Ida on Sunday morning when three men in their 20s with their faces obscured entered the house and fired several rounds into the ceilings and walls.

The gunshots at around 3 a.m. on Sunday prompted a call to 911 saying there had been a drive-by shooting, according to Sgt. Bart Brunscheen, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department.

The men with the guns had already left by the time Wichita police officers arrived. But officers were told that a fight had broken out earlier between one man and six others. The six men left the party and three later returned. They demanded cash and cell phones. Once they received those, Brunscheen said, they fled the scene.

No one was injured by the gunfire.

A crime lab was called to the scene.
