Wichita police say a 35-year-old man is recovering from a leg wound after gunfire erupted during an argument early Saturday near I-135 and Hydraulic.

The altercation involved the 35-year-old and two other men, apparently unknown to the shooting victim, at an address in the 1600 block of East Fortuna, Sgt. Bruce Watts said. Around 3 a.m., one of the men pulled out a handgun and fired, he said.

At least one bullet struck the 35-year-old’s leg, Watts said. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Saturday afternoon, Watts described the injured man’s condition as “stable.”
