Wichita police are investigating a shooting that occurred at about 1 a.m. Sunday following a party in south Wichita.

A 28-year-old man received a grazing wound to his elbow, according to Sgt. Ed Brower, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department. Police were called to the area of Lincoln and Pinecrest when a witness from the party flagged officers down.

The party was in the 800 block of South Pinecrest, near Edgemoor.

The man refused medical attention from a EMS unit called to the scene.

According to witnesses, a fight broke out and an individual pulled out a gun and shot the man and at two other people, Brower said.

Officers found a 9 mm handgun and casings in the 700 block of South Pinecrest.

“It is believed to be the gun used,” Brower said.

No arrests have been made.
