WICHITA _ Police say a stabbing and shooting that took place only minutes apart in south Wichita around midnight do not appear to be related.
A 21-year-old man was stabbed twice after he got out of his car shortly before 11:30 p.m. Monday to confront a group of people blocking the exit to a parking lot in the 1600 block of East Crowley, which is west of Planeview in southeast Wichita.
The man told police he and his girlfriend decided to go for a drive, then pulled into a parking lot to turn around. The group of people blocked the driveway to the lot, and he said he was stabbed twice by a woman after he confronted them.
The man was taken to Via Christi Hospital on East Harry just after 11:30 p.m., then transferred to Via Christi's St. Francis Campus. A 32-year-old woman has been questioned in the case, police said, but no arrests have been made.
Police heard gunshots as they were patrolling in the area of Hydraulic and Tulsa. As they searched for the source of the gunshots, they spotted a car leaving the neighborhood just after midnight at a high rate of speed.
They stopped the car in the 1600 block of East Tulsa and found a 38-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his arm. He was taken to St. Francis for treatment and released.
He was being uncooperative with police attempting to solve the case, Lt. Darras Delamaide said.
Police initially thought the stabbing and shooting incidents might be related, but Delamaide said nothing appears to connect the cases.
