INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (July 7, 2014)– A violent weekend of shootings that left an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer dead, a 23-year-old man critically injured and six others wounded caused a shortage in Indianapolis’ blood supply.
The Indiana Blood Center said the shootings over the Fourth of July weekend left the community blood supply critically low. As of Monday morning, the center was unable to fill 72 hospital orders for O- blood. All other blood types are below stable levels.
Hoosiers are urged to donate at a donor center or blood drive nearby within the next couple of the days. You can schedule an appointment here or call 317-916-5150.
