A Wichita man was shot in the leg while he was sleeping early Friday, when someone opened fire at the back wall of his home.
Sgt. Jim Merrick of Wichita Police says someone in an alley fired seven shots around 1:00 a.m. in the 1200 block of West Second Street North. A 44-year-old man inside the home was hospitalized with a serious leg wound. His wife and daughter were unharmed.
Police searched the alley area for evidence of a suspect, but no arrest has been announced.
Earlier in the evening, a woman walking her dog was shot in the leg with a pellet gun at Ninth and Roosevelt. She was treated for minor injuries at a hospital and released.
