WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a Wichita shooting that critically injured one man may be related to a killing outside an event venue in a nearby community.

The Wichita Eagle reports that emergency crews responded around 5:45 p.m. Monday to the Wichita shooting. Police Sgt. Robert Henning says a man in his 20s had been shot once in his chest. The man was awake and alert when he was taken to a hospital.

Henning says it appears that he was on a sidewalk with his friends and was flagged over to a vehicle, where a disturbance happened and he was shot. Henning says the vehicle is possibly connected to a deadly shooting that happened around 1:45 a.m. Sunday in Haysville after a party.

Haysville is about 10 miles (16 kilometers) south of Wichita.
