2 men wounded in near northwest side shooting

INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Metropolitan police are searching for clues into what led to the shootings of two men Monday.

The incident happened shortly after 1 a.m. near the intersection of W. 32nd St. and Rader St. The 29-year-old victims were discovered in an alley–both suffering gunshot wounds to the leg. They were transported to Eskenazi Hospital in serious but stable condition.

“At this time, all we know is that the two males at this time are confident that they do know the shooter, so we are confident that the aggravated assault detectives on scene are gonna be able to get that information and hopefully work the case to the point of resolution,” said Capt. Harold S. Turner with IMPD.

“No one, fortunately, in this situation was seriously injured. And obviously the big question is, ‘What were they doing out here at one o’clock in the morning, all three of them in the alley?'” Turner said. “Well, I’m sure there’s some unknown business going on that’s never really that good to be in the alley at one o’clock in the morning. And as a result, as you can see, something bad happened and two people ended up getting shot.”

Police said they believe the shooting was an isolated incident and were looking for a possible suspect.
