INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Nov. 3, 2015) – One of the victims of last week’s shooting at Washington Square Mall now faces charges following the incident.

Aaron Carr, 26, faces preliminary charges of theft and having a handgun without a license, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. Carr was one of three people injured during the Wednesday night shooting near Target.

According to police, Carr was released from Methodist Hospital on November 2, and he was immediately taken into custody by IMPD.
