Police say they have arrested two suspects after two teenage brothers were shot outside their home in north Wichita. 

Police spokesperson Charley Davidson said Wednesday that officers arrested 20-year-old Rogers Gomez for counts of aggravated battery and a 17-year-old boy for aggravated battery and criminal possession of a firearm by a juvenile. He said both are documented gang members. 

Wichita police are searching for suspects after two teenage brothers were shot outside their home on the north side.

Officers first responded at around 8 p.m. Sunday to the report of a walk-in shooting victim at Ascension Via Christi St. Francis. Officer Davidson said the shooting happened in the 2300 block of North Mascot, near 21st and Arkansas. 

The two brothers, ages 17 and 19, were outside their home when a white Chrysler 300 pulled up. Davidson said Gomez and the juvenile exited the car and shots were fired toward the two teens. Two others were in the Chrysler 300. 

Police located the 19-year-old victim in a vehicle at William and Washington. He was on his way to the hospital.

The 17-year-old was treated for a gunshot wound to the abdomen and his older brother was treated for a gunshot wound to the foot. 

Davidson said the shooting was not random.
