Wichita police have identified two people who were shot and killed Monday night at an apartment complex in south Wichita.
Police responded at around 9:30 p.m. to a shooting in the 2700 block of south Emporia after 911 calls of "gunshots and a loud crash" came in, police spokesperson Trevor Macy said.
Officers found 17-year-old Alexis Cervantes-Martinez and 16-year-old Mariah Zamora, both from Wichita, inside a vehicle crashed into a storage unit at the apartment complex, Macy said in the release.
Investigators learned that both teens were at the location for a "drug transaction" when someone else fired a gun multiple times, fatally injuring both, Macy said.
Cervantes-Martinez was pronounced dead at the scene; Zamora was taken to a hospital, where she died, Macy said in the release.
