INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 28, 2014) — The family of a woman, shot in the face at a northside apartment complex, is hoping you can help police find the man who did it.

It happened around 4 a.m. in front of the Woodbridge Apartments in the 5800 block of San Miguel Ct., near 96th St. and Allisonville Rd., an area that isn’t known for crime. The sound of gun shots is jarring, even more when it’s right outside your door.

“You don’t expect it, it’s one of the last things you that would expect to be around here,” said neighbor Taylor Bussick.

“I was watching from the window and I could just see police officers swarming everywhere,” said Stephanie Goss.

Those officers were looking for any clues connected to the vicious and bloody crime. Indianapolis Metropolitan Police detectives say two women had gotten out of their car when a man came up and shot one of them in the face and in the arm. The second woman sprained her ankle as she ran away. Police say the triggerman took off across Allisonville Rd., leaving the two women to beg for help. Eventually, paramedics showed up and the police investigation was well underway as Goss and Bussick watched.

“We saw her when they were pulling away, and she definitely had a wound right on her cheek,” Bussick said. “It was crazy.”

The woman was taken by ambulance to the hospital to be treated. Her family told us they’re still not sure what kind of treatment she’ll have to go through. It’s a crime that’s rocked a neighborhood not necessarily used to this sort of thing.

“I mean, it’s overwhelming and scary,” Goss said. “Scary to think that stuff like that happens, even when you feel safe.”

If you have any information that can help police find the gunman, call IMPD or Central Indiana Crime Stoppers.
