A young male who may have had something to do with a shooting Friday night at Lafayette Square Mall, has been interviewed by police.

Witnesses say three or four shots were fired inside the mall just before 7 p.m.

Police later found large guns in a car near the mall.

They also found the suspected handgun on the northwest side of the mall, not far from where they picked up the young man.

No one was injured in the shooting.

    Lafayette square has been a plague to the northwest side for years …. Once an awesome place to shop and be with family … Now a dump..! A direct result of political correctness and letting thugs and thugettes run rampant … This is why I am armed and always will be …!

    Tthat's why I've started ordering stuff online. Haven't been to a mall for a long time. Traffic was a nightmare at Castleton. I grew up on the westside of Indy in the 60's & 70's and would go to Lafayette Square mall when it was better. Haven't been on westside since 1989. Moved to one of the surrounding suburbs and haven't regretted it.

    Sam is dead one. Better yet re-open Eastgate. Move Don' Guns inside of Lafayette Scare, put one in at Eastgate. Caveat would be that they would have to go thru metal detection before being allowed to leave.
