WICHITA, Kan (KSNW) – The Wichita Police Department is searching for four suspects after a man drove to QuikTrip with a critical gunshot wound.

Police say the man drove to a QuikTrip in the 2800 block of East 31st Street South at 12:30 a.m. Sunday and talked with two Kansas Highway Patrol officers.

He told officers he was parked in his car near East Pawnee and South Oliver Street when a car with four young males, possibly teens, pulled up beside him.

“He had been shot one time in the face with a handgun,” says Wichita Police Sgt., Brian Goward. “Victim said he was parked in his vehicle at Ross Parkway and Jewett when an unknown vehicle with four suspects pulled up beside him, he said. Without warning, he was suddenly shot in the face.”

The victim was able to talk to police, even though he was in critical condition. He was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive. Police say the victim may have known one of the suspects.

Officers are still trying to get more information on the suspects, but do not have an arrest. They continue to investigate.
