One injured after shooting at Wichita club, police say

The Wichita Police Department is investigating a shooting that took place at the 300 Club early Monday morning.

At about 1:40 a.m. officers responded to a report of an aggravated battery at the club in the 1600 block of South Woodlawn, Officer Charley Davidson said.

When officers arrived, they talked to security who reported removing individuals who were involved in a physical altercation inside the club. Shortly after, they heard gunshots outside.

Davidson said officers found blood in the parking lot and numerous shell casings on Woodlawn.

No victims or suspects were found at or near the club.

At 4:15 a.m., a 26-year-old man arrived at Wesley Hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to one of his legs, police said. He was initially uncooperative, Davidson said, but then said he had been involved in the earlier shooting.

Police gave this suspect description: a man in his 30s, with a heavy build, about 5 feet 11 inches tall, driving a small, silver four-door car with damage to its front bumper.

Davidson said this was not a random incident, and the investigation is ongoing.

Police are also working with the club's management company due to multiple incidents that recently occurred at the club.

If you have any information regarding the incidents, contact Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.
