WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Wichita police believe a drug deal in a Dillons parking lot led to a shooting that injured a 16-year-old boy.

Officers responded at around 7 p.m. Tuesday to a shooting at the Dillons at 21st Street North and Amidon. They arrived to find shell casings and damage to a vehicle. 

Police spokesperson Charley Davidson said a 16-year-old victim and a 20-year-old man arrived at a local hospital a short time later. The teen was being treated for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. The man, identified as Rico Brown, was not hurt

Davidson said the teen, Brown and an 18-year-old man met a group of males in the parking lot for an alleged drug deal. Multiple shots were fired during the incident. 

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

Investigators learned that Brown was allegedly involved in a shooting at Schweiter Park in the 900 block of South Chautauqua on October 14. He was arrested and booked for aggravated battery and criminal possession of a firearm by a felon.

Officers previously arrested 20-year-old Katrina Shaw for aggravated battery in connection with that case. 

A 22-year-old woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the shooting at Schweiter Park.
