SEDGWICK COUNTY —Law enforcement authorities  investigating a shooting that injured two teens.

Just before 3 p.m. on Wednesday, police responded to a shooting call at an apartment complex in the 1100 block of South Webb Road in Wichita, according to officer Charley Davidson.

Upon arrival, officers located a 17-year-old victim in a parking lot with critical injuries.  He was transported to an area hospital for medical treatment, and he remains in critical condition.

Several minutes later, officers responded to an area hospital regarding an 18-year-old walk-in shooting victim with a gunshot wound to his body.  He was treated for a non-life-threatening injury and released.

The investigation revealed two unknown suspects and the two victims had made an arrangement to meet in the apartment complex parking lot. 

Investigators are working to learn the circumstances of the meeting.  An unknown suspect arrived at the apartment complex parking lot driving a newer-model white mustang, and the second unknown suspect arrived at the same time driving a grey Buick.  The two victims walked up to the Buick and got into the vehicle, occupied by one suspect.   

During the meeting inside the Buick, a disturbance ensued, and the suspect seated in the Mustang exited the car and fired multiple shots at the victims, striking them and causing their injuries.  Both suspects then fled in the vehicles they were driving when they arrived, according to Davidson.
