August 20, 2018

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police are investigating a shooting that left two men dead.

Investigators say the shooting early Saturday was not gang related and the two victims didn’t know each other.

Officer Charley Davidson identified the men Monday as 24-year-old Manuel Otano-Hernandez and 36-year-old Jesse Villalobos, both of Wichita.

Police say Otano-Hernandez and two others were shooting a weapon in an alley near a home where Villalobos and several other people were gathered.

Davidson says the two men were shot by an unknown suspect during a confrontation between the two groups.

Otano-Hernandez died from a gunshot to the abdomen and Villalobos died from a gunshot to the leg.

No one else was injured.
