Indianapolis Metro Police officers are investigating four shootings that all happened in just a matter of hours. The first happened after 11 o’clock Thursday near 42nd Street and Sheridan Avenue where two people were shot. One of those victims made his way to nearby Fire Station 24 for help. Officers found the other injured man at the scene. Both people are in good condition.

At about midnight, bullets started flying in the area of 37th Street and Hillside Avenue. That’s where officers found bullet holes in cars and homes. One man was hit while sitting in his car but was able to drive to the hospital.

“I was in there lyin in the bed, and I heard what I thought was on T.V., but was out here, and I come outside, my wife just had to jump off a bench, and hide for cover.  They shot my truck up, they shot the house up, and they shot the house up next door,” said Ronald Reynolds who lives in the neighborhood.

Shortly after that shooting and about a mile away, someone shot a man in the back near 31st and Hovey Street. That man was taken to Wishard Hospital in critical condition.

Just after 3 o’clock Friday morning, officers responded to a shooting on West 27th Street. They found a man there shot in the leg.

All of the incidents are still under investigation. Officers have not made any arrests in any of these cases.
