Anyone with information can call WPD detectives at 316-268-4407, the See Something Say Something hotline at 316-519-2282, or Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111. The case number is 21C063120.

At approximately 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday, officers responded to a drive-by call at a home in the 1400 block of North Harding.  Upon arrival, officers located a home that had been damaged by a gunshot.  Inside the home, officers located an 11-year-old female who was laying in bed and had been shot.  She was taken to an area hospital for medical treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.  Four other individuals were inside the home at the time and were not injured.

Calling parties reported hearing multiple gunshots and seeing an unknown type of vehicle leaving north on Harding and then west towards Oliver.

“This is not believed to be a random incident, and someone knows information on who is involved,” WPD Captain Jason Stephens said.  “We have one goal, and that is to hold the offender accountable, especially when it involves an innocent child victim, but we need the community’s help.”
