SEDGWICK COUNTY —Law enforcement authorities investigating a Tuesday shooting that left one man dead and two injured and arrested 21-year-old Terry Wallace. 

Just before 9a.m. Tuesday, police responded to a shooting call in the 1100 block of North Ash in Wichita, according to officer Charley Davidson.

Upon arrival, officers contacted a man who had been shot.  He was transported to an area hospital where he died.  Two other 18-year-old men involved in the incident also arrived at the hospital who had been shot. They remain hospitalized, according to police Captain Jason Stephens,

Investigators have learned that four individuals had a prearranged meeting set for the residence on North Ash. There was a disagreement during the meeting that led to shots being fired, according to Stephens.

Some of the individuals do have gang connections, according Stephens but police do no know the motive for the shooting.

Wallace is being held on requested charges of first-degree murder, according to online jail records.

This is the third fatal shooting in Wichita in four days and the 38th criminal homicide in 2020, according to Stephens. There were 35 criminal homicides in 2019.

A 17-year-old and a 22-year-old died in separate shootings over the weekend in Wichita.
