Two teenage brothers were shot and seriously wounded while they were parked in a convenience store parking lot in north Wichita late Wednesday night, authorities said.
The brothers, ages 15 and 18, were with girls ages 17 and 18 when a man about 20 years old approached their vehicle and opened fire at about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday at the QuikTrip in the 600 block of West 21st Street, Capt. Doug Nolte said.
The brothers were both shot in the hand and arm, according to a police document. They drove to a house in the area of Erie and 27th Street North before calling 911, Nolte said. They were taken to Wesley Medical Center for treatment of injuries considered serious but not life-threatening.
“I don’t know if the shooter was targeting the two in the car or the whole car,” Nolte said.
The suspect left the convenience store in a dark blue, four-door sedan.
Authorities hope that security video from the convenience store will provide clues to the shooter’s identity.
