INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Police arrested a person of interest Sunday in connection with a shooting on the city’s southwest side Saturday evening.

Corey Tibbs, 38, was detained shortly after police say he shot two men who were having a backyard cookout in the 2800 block of Rybolt Avenue around 6:15 p.m. Officers say the incident started when Tibbs confronted the men about a vehicle blocking the alley where he was trying to drive.

Officers say one victim was shot in the neck, while the other was shot in the leg. Both of the men were taken to Eskenazi Hospital.

Tibbs was taken to the Arrestee Processing Center  where he was preliminarily charged with attempted murder, criminal recklessness with a weapon, and possession of a handgun without a license.
