WICHITA — Wichita police are still looking for the suspect in Sunday's early morning shooting that left two men critically wounded.

Two men were shot around 1:20 a.m. Sunday at The Wichita Ballroom at 4150 W. Kellogg.

One of the victims, a 21-year-old man, got into a verbal argument with the suspect and was shot twice, once in the chest and once in the left leg, said Lt. Steve Kenney.

A 33-year-old security guard who worked at the Ballroom attempted to intervene and was shot once in the left arm.

The suspect fled the scene, and no arrests have been made in the case, Kenney said.

The 21-year-old victim was transported to Via Christi on St. Francis, where he is on a ventilator in critical condition as of this morning.

The 33-year-old was taken by private vehicle to Wesley Medical Center. He also remains in critical condition.
