Police were called out to 100 W. Mt. Vernon around 3:30pm Thursday, where a woman was shot. Police believe it was a domestic dispute and that they know how the suspect is and are now looking for him.

A woman was taken to a hospital in critical condition after a south Wichita shooting during a domestic dispute, officials said.

Police were called to the 100 block of West Mt. Vernon for a reported shooting at around 3:30 p.m. Thursday, a dispatch supervisor said. One person was taken to a hospital with critical injuries.

Police Sgt. David Nienstedt said a woman in her 30s was taken to Wesley Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Police said they have identified a suspect and think the shooting is part of an ongoing domestic dispute.

Drew Mullen, a painter working in the area, said a white pickup pulled up with a woman in the driver’s seat and a man in the passenger’s seat, and then there was a commotion inside the vehicle.

“I heard two ‘pop, pop’ and then the door swings open, she yells ‘no, no,’ she’s screaming, a third pop hits she takes out of the car and starts sprinting down the street,” Mullen said.
