Wichita Police look for south Edwards shooter
WPD Lt. Joe Schroeder
The search continues for the shooter who left a woman with a gunshot wound to the jaw in the 400 block of S. Edwards.
It happened about 8:20 p.m. Wednesday night.
"Two men tried to force their way inside the house," Wichita Police Lt. Joe Schroeder said. "As this was going on, one of the suspects produced a handgun and fired two shots through the front door. One of which struck the 18-year-old female in the face."
The men did not get inside the home. A 19-year-old man who lived in the home with the woman was not hurt. She was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
"The woman is expected to recover from her wounds," Schroeder said. "It is not known why this residence was targeted by these two people."
The suspects were described as African-American men, believed to be in their 20s, weighing 160 pounds. Schroeder said both suspects were wearing dark-hooded sweatshirts. One suspect had goatee chin hair and held a black handgun. So far, there have been no arrests.
"You do what you can to secure your residence, " Schroeder said. "If someone breaks into your residence, the best bet is to either comply with what they are telling you to do. If they have a gun on you or if you're able to get out of the residence, get out of the residence and run for help. But in this case I can't think of anything different they would've done."
