Two 19-year-old men have been arrested and were being questioned Tuesday about the Labor Day shooting in northeast Wichita that left a man in critical condition.
The 30-year-old victim was shot twice — once in the back and once in the leg — by one of the 19-year-olds at about 12:40 p.m. Monday while standing in the yard of a house in the 1100 block of North Green, Wichita police Lt. Joe Schroeder said Tuesday.
The victim lived at the residence and was working on the house, Schroeder said.
Police declined to identify the victim. He was taken to Wesley Medical Center; an update on his condition was not available Tuesday.
Also present at the time of the shooting were two relatives of the victim — a 57-year-old woman and a 5-year-old boy. Neither was injured, Schroeder said.
Schroeder said the two 19-year-olds pulled up to the house in a blue Chevrolet Impala. One of the men walked up to the victim and shot him.
The men were arrested shortly after the shooting, Schroeder said. No charges had been filed as Tuesday afternoon and the investigation was continuing.
No motive for the shooting had been determined, Schroeder said.
