Two homes and a vehicle were hit by gunfire during a drive-by shooting late Thursday night near 21st Street North and Hillside.
Officers responding to the shooting report around 11:50 p.m. found bullet holes in a home in the 2000 block of North Chautauqua and in a vacant house in the 2900 block of East Stadium, Wichita police Lt. Doug Nolte said. A 40-year-old man’s vehicle parked in front of the house on Chautauqua also sustained damage, he said.
Police found multiple shell casings in the street and recovered two firearms and a magazine near the crime scene, he said. The vehicle used in the shooting is described as a brown GMC Suburban.
Two women, ages 28 and 46, were in the house on Chautauqua when the gunfire occurred, Nolte said. No one was hurt.
