A 22-year-old man who was shot at a house in the Delano area Friday morning is expected to survive, Wichita police say.
Two men forced their way into a house in the 1600 block of West Maple, near Seneca, according to a release from Wichita police Sgt. Nikki Woodrow. They demanded the victim’s personal property, opened fire then left.
A Sedgwick County dispatcher said a call about the shooting came in at about 9 a.m. The man was taken to a local hospital; his injuries do not appear life-threatening, police said. A woman, 19, and a boy, 3, were also in the home when the shooting happened.
Police are asking anyone with information about the case to call Wichita-Sedgwick Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111. Tipsters can remain anonymous.

Three Wichita public schools — Franklin Elementary, Allison Middle School and West High — were locked down for about 20 minutes Friday morning while police investigated the shooting, district spokeswoman Susan Arensman said by e-mail.
