Teenager hospitalized after being shot by Wichita police

KSAL StaffDecember 5, 2015

Wichita police say a black teenager was in critical condition after being shot by police as he ran with a gun toward the doors of a high school where a girls’ basketball game was being played.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1NxFOPJ) reports the teen fled after police pulled over a pickup truck that was pulling into the West High School parking lot around 6:30 p.m. Friday. Deputy Police Chief Hassan Ramzah says there were four people in the truck, and one got out with a handgun and started running toward the south doors of the school.

Ramzah says multiple shots were fired at the teen after he ignored verbal warnings to stop and got closer to the door. He was taken to Via Christi Hospital St. Francis in critical condition.
