WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Police say two people were killed and seven injured in a shooting at a wake in southeast Wichita.

Deputy Police Chief Robert Lee told The Wichita Eagle and KAKE-TV that all the victims of Saturday night's shooting were adults but he did not know their ages or genders.

One other victim was reported in critical condition and four others were reported in serious condition.

Lee says the shooting occurred about 9:30 p.m. He could not say how many shooters were involved but says some of the shots came from outside the home. No arrests have been made.

Lee says police had trouble communicating because many of those at the house did not speak English.

Police did not immediately return phone calls from The Associated Press.
