WICHITA, Kan.-- A man was shot and seriously injured near the 1500 block of north Pinecrest early Sunday morning.

This all started near a home in the intersection of 14th and Pinecrest around 1:45 a.m. Police were called to disturbance with the report of gunfire; when they arrived a 20-year-old man was found with a gun shot wound to his thigh.

There were multiple bullets fired, four of which hit a home adjacent to the location where the wounded man was found. The family in the home says that the wall the bullets hit separated their bedroom from the outside.

Another shooting happened Saturday night two blocks away. A teenager was shot in the leg while standing at the corner of Northeast Parkway and 14th St.

Police do not have a suspect in either case.
