INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Police arrested a man in connection with a shooting at a gas station on the near northeast side of Indianapolis Tuesday afternoon.
According to Indianapolis Metropolitan police, Trevell Patton, 21, shot and wounded Lavon Beverly, 31, at the Clark gas station in the 2900 block of E. 38th Street. A second person, Kaycie Glenn, 22, was injured by flying debris. Police originally thought Glenn had also been shot.
Detectives said the shooting stemmed from an argument involving Patton, Beverly and several other individuals. Police were still looking for a person of interest who left the scene in a Chevy Impala.
Officers were dispatched to the gas station around 2 p.m. Tuesday. Officers found shell casings but no victims after the shooting was reported. They later found Beverly at a bus stop and Glenn at 34th and Sherman.
Both were taken to Eskenazi Hospital; an ambulance carrying one of the victims crashed on Keystone Avenue and 24th Street near Interstate 70 in an accident that involved three other vehicles. The shooting victim was transferred to another ambulance.
Patton faces a preliminary charge of aggravated battery.
Anyone with information about the shooting should call Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-TIPS.
