WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 17-year-old Wichita boy is dead after being shot in the head at a private birthday party during an argument that didn’t involve him.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1KY75aC ) reports Leon McClennon died shortly before 3 a.m. Saturday in the basement of Parrot-fa-Nalia, where about 20 people had gathered for the party.

Police say an argument involving two men escalated until one of them pulled out a gun and fired shots, hitting McClennon.

Police spokesman Lt. Jason Stephens says there was a wide range of ages at the party, including people in their 40s.

Stephens says McClennon simply was in the wrong place at the wrong time. A person of interest has been identified in the shooting but no charges have been filed.
