Wichita police are investigating a shooting Wednesday night where the victim showed up at a QuikTrip at 13th and Oliver.

The man appeared to have a gunshot wound to the chest, according to an initial report to emergency dispatchers. He was taken in critical condition to Wesley Medical Center. The shooting was reported at 7:11 p.m.

The man, in his early 40s, drove to the QuikTrip and told a customer from his car that he had been shot, Wichita police Sgt. Don Story said Wednesday.
