Posted: Updated:

Wichita police are investigating after a man suffered non-life-threatening injuries in a shooting early Tuesday morning.

It happened just before 2 a.m. in the 2600 block of South Jewett, near George Washington Boulevard. Lt. Rick Moscicki said a family member called 911 to report the man was bleeding.

Officers arrived to find the 27-year-old victim in front of his home. He had been shot once in the shoulder. 

EMS rushed the victim to a nearby hospital in critical condition, but Officer Charley Davidson said his injuries were not life-threatening. 

Officer Davidson said investigators learned the victim had gotten into an argument with the 30-year-old suspect. The suspect then shot the victim before leaving in a 2002 Cadillac Escalade belonging to a 32-year-old woman who was also at the home.

Also at the home was the suspect's 30-year-old girlfriend and three boys, ages 6, 10 and 11. They were not hurt.

"All of the individuals lived there, except for the suspect. It was the victim's home," Officer Davidson said. 

Police were interviewing several witnesses. No arrests have been made.
