The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said the driver of a pickup truck traveling west on Market Street tried to “frantically” get the attention of a police officer passing by around 1:35 p.m. The truck stopped near the City-County Building downtown.

Police said a woman suffering from multiple gunshot wounds was found inside the truck. She was taken to Eskenazi Health, where she remains in critical condition. Sources initially indicated the victim had died, but the woman is alive.

Authorities said they do not believe the woman was shot downtown, and they are unsure at this time why she was brought downtown.  Police told FOX59 the driver was carrying a handgun and was detained for questioning.

Traffic is closed on Market Street between Alabama and Delaware while police continue to investigate.
