A man who came to Wichita for a possible drug deal is being uncooperative with investigators after he was shot in the leg, police say.

Police responded at around 7:15 p.m. Wednesday to a reported walk-in shooting victim at Via Christi Hospital St. Joseph, Officer Charley Davidson said. They found a 19-year-old man who had a gunshot wound to his left thigh. He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators determined that the man and an 18-year-old woman had traveled to Wichita to “engage in a possible drug transaction,” Davidson said.

The woman left the man at an unknown location, and the man was shot once by an unknown person, Davidson said. The man then called the woman from a residence in the 300 block of South Estelle, near Kellogg and Hillside, and the woman picked him up and gave him a ride to the hospital.

The man has not been cooperative with investigators, Davidson said. No arrests have been made in connection to the case.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.

Police Sgt. Mike Linnehan said a man was shot in his leg by a roommate after an argument at a south Wichita mobile home on Tuesday evening. He was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive. Nov. 6, 2018.
