SEDGWICK COUNTY —Law enforcement authorities are investigating a shooting that sent a man to the hospital.
Just after noon on Wednesday, police responded to a disturbance with shots fired and a dog being shot at a home in the 2800 block of E. Mossman in Wichita, according to officer Charley Davidson.
Upon arrival, officers heard shots being fired and observed a man running and getting into a silver Jeep and leaving. Officers stopped the vehicle in the area of 800 N. Green and located a 31-year-old man who had a gunshot wound to his rear end. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening injury.
The investigation revealed, a 59-year-old man lives with the 31-year-old man at a home in the 800 block of North Green, according to Davidson.
The 59-year-old saw the 31-year-old’s pit-bull escape out of the yard. He followed the dog to a home in the 2800 block of East Mossman, where the dog attacked a Rottweiler puppy.
At the home on Mossman, a 42-year-old woman resident fired a handgun at the pit-bull attacking her dog and struck it, causing minor injuries to the dog.
The 59-year-old returned to the home on North Green with the dog and relayed what occurred to the 31-year-old.
The 31-year-old drove to the Mossman home in a tan Ford Escape. After he arrived, a disturbance ensued, his Ford Escape was rammed, and shots were fired by the 42–year-old female that struck the man.
The male who was shot then left with his friends and roommates in the silver Jeep, who had followed him to the home.
Investigators are working to determine all the circumstances of what occurred. Davidson did not report the name of the victim or any possible arrests.
