WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Three suspects remain in critical condition and a fourth has been arrested after a shooting Monday night in south Wichita. 

Officer Charley Davidson said four people went to a mobile home near MacArthur and Meridian to buy marijuana. Three of them went into the home while the fourth remained in a vehicle. 

Four others were already in the home. 

Davidson said a fight broke out, and the suspects shot the 23-year-old homeowner in the thigh. He grabbed a gun and fired back. Following the shooting, the three suspects, ages 18, 18 and 23, were dropped off at a local hospital with injuries to their chest, groin and face.

The homeowner was treated and released from the hospital. 

The getaway driver returned to the hospital on Tuesday afternoon and was arrested and booked for two counts of aggravated assault, aggravated battery, aggravated burglary and criminal discharge of a firearm. Jail records identify him as 18-year-old Jalin Marshaun Terrell. 

Police said two of the four suspects are documented gang members.


Previous story:

Police say four people were injured in a shooting at a mobile home park in south Wichita, the second shooting in two hours.

Officers were called at around 11 p.m. to a shooting on West MacArthur near Meridian. A 23-year-old man was found shot in the leg at a mobile home.

Police say three people arrived at the home and began shooting at the man. The homeowner grabbed a gun and fired back, hitting the three suspects. 

While the homeowner was rushed to a hospital for treatment, the three suspects showed up at a local emergency room. Their conditions were not released.

People are upset about the shooting since the mobile homes are close to each other.

"Not much really we can do," said Rochelle Reyes whose home was struck by a bullet. "Just be a little more cautious, I guess, 'cause you never know when anything's going to happen. We've lived here all that long and nothing happened."

No arrests have been announced. Police say they do not believe the shooting was random.

Earlier in the evening, a man was shot in the abdomen near Wilma and George Washington Boulevard.
