Police are investigating a shooting west of Maple Grove Cemetery Monday night.

The shooting occurred at about 10:15 p.m. in the 1200 block of North Spruce, Lt. Dan East said. That’s southwest of 13th and Grove, just east of I-135.

A 34-year-old man told police he was standing in his front yard talking with two friends when he was shot in the leg. No suspect or vehicle was seen, East said.

The victim was taken to Wesley Medical Center for treatment. While a hospital operator confirmed the victim was being treated there, she refused to give a condition report.

Police are seeking help from anyone who might have information about the shooting, East said. They can call detectives at 316-268-4407 or Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111. Tips can also be sent online at www.WichitaCrimestoppers.com or via mobile phone by texting TIP217 then the message to CRIMES (274637).
