For the past month, gun shots in Wichita's Old Town have put local businesses and police on alert. But while restaurants and bars have beefed up security, two t-shirt businesses are cashing in.
A group with the website EnjoyOurOldTown.com is selling t-shirts. Their shirts say "Welcome to Wichita Old Town Enjoy -- Shop, Play, Dine, Stay."
The website says a portion of t-shirt sales will be given to The Old Town Association which helps spur development.
On the other side, Upsidedowntown is printing t-shirts that say "Welcome to Wichita Old Town Duck" followed by an expletive and two handguns.
They've sold about 50 shirts so far, mostly early in the morning as bars and restaurants close. The designers of the shirt say it is meant to be "satire" only.
The Old Town Association isn't happy about this shirt. Neither are area business owners.
Wichita police increased the number of officers on patrol in Old Town this past weekend. Before this week, there were reports of gunfire in the area each of the past four weekends.
