WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Three teenagers have been charged in a drive-by shooting that wounded a 19-year-old woman as she rode on a party bus in Wichita.

Police announced Monday that a 16-, 17- and 18-year-old are accused in the shooting that sent the woman to a hospital earlier this month with a shoulder wound. The youngest teen faces the most serious charge of criminal discharge of a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

Police say riders on a Spots Party Bus were being dropped off when someone outside fired several shots at the bus and a nearby vehicle. The shooting happened near a 44-foot (13.41 meter) tall steel sculpture called the Keeper of the Plains. The sculpture stands at the point where the Big and Little Arkansas rivers join together in downtown Wichita.
