WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Wichita police have arrested a 16-year-old girl in connection to a drive-by shooting Wednesday night.

Officers were called at around 10:50 p.m. to a drive-by at a home in the 1100 block of North Green, near 9th and Grove. They arrived to find an SUV that has been struck multiple times by gunfire. Shell casings were also found at the scene.

No one was hurt.

Officer Charley Davidson said a 47-year-old woman told police there had been a disturbance between her 15-year-old daughter and some friends earlier that evening.

Officers spoke to the people involved and the investigation led them to a home in the 700 block of North Faulkner in Riverside, where they arrested the teenager. She was booked into the juvenile detention facility for criminal discharge of a firearm and criminal damage to property.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call WPD detectives at (316) 268-4407 or Crime Stoppers at (316) 267-2111.
