WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Officials say a shooting in south Wichita has left two men dead Saturday.

According to Officer Charley Davidson with the Wichita Police Department, it happened around 3 p.m. with a shooting call in the 1500 block of West Merton.

Davidson says when officers arrived they found two 20-year-old men, identified by police as Ky E. Jones, Jr. and Jeremy R. Burdine on the ground in front of a home.

Both victims were taken to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds, where they died from their injuries.

An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary.

The investigation is ongoing and police plan to present the case to the Segwick County District Attorney’s Office.
