A documented gang member was arrested late Thursday night after he reportedly fired a shot at two men during a dispute in south Wichita, police said.

The argument broke out in the 1000 block of South Seneca at about 10 p.m., Wichita police Lt. Doug Nolte said. That’s near McCormick, south of Kellogg.

At one point, the 17-year-old suspect pulled out a small handgun and fired a shot at the two men, ages 27 and 28, Nolte said. They ran to a house and called 911.

The suspect was found walking in the area by police officers at about 10:15 p.m. It’s not clear whether the incident was gang-related or not, Nolte said.

No injuries were reported.
