Wichita man shoots himself during drug deal

By Jacob Weston. CREATED Mar 19, 2014

 Wichita police were called to the 1000 block of south Pinecrest, after a drug deal had gone awry Tuesday night.

An 18 year-old reports meeting with a 19 year-old, when the older man pulled a gun. The younger man tried to push the gun away and the two struggled over it. During the tussle the 19 year-old fired one shot, hitting himself in the leg. He was taken to a hospital for his injury. The 18 year-old was unhurt.

So far neither individual has been arrested. Investigators are still working the case to determine what drugs were being exchanged and who was buying or selling.
