WICHITA, Kansas – Police are trying to locate at least one gunman after an overnight shooting Saturday night in East Wichita.

Police were originally called to help clear a parking lot area at JJ’s Diner in the 900 block of San Pablo near Lincoln and Governour. After arriving there around 2:30 a.m., officials say shots were heard and more police called. More law enforcement arrived around 2:40 a.m. and began to canvass the area to find victims and suspects.

Officers report a 20-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound, and that the victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police say they have no one in custody but had many people to speak to regarding the case due to the sheer volume of people nearby when the shooting took place.

The victim’s condition on Sunday was listed as serious.
