WICHITA, Kansas – Two people are in custody following a shooting and a drug deal that left a man dead in southeast Wichita. Police say the shooting happened just after 4 p.m. Thursday in the 1100 block of South Terrace.
The victim, identified as 23-year-old David J. Ingram, was a passenger in a vehicle that also had the two suspects inside. Police say the victim was seated in the front passenger seat and was shot in the back of the head. Another woman in the driver’s seat wasn’t injured. Police say the shooting was the result of drugs.
“Her and the victim picked up two additional males, in order to sell narcotics to them. They picked up the males a short distance away,” said Lt. Todd Ojile, Wichita Police Department. “They were in the car for a short time, during this short time, one of the males that they picked up and pulled a gun firing numerous rounds, killing him.”
Two hours after the investigation began, police arrested two men in the 7500 block of East Watson.
