INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were involved in a very active Saturday night responding to several reports of fighting and disruptive behavior incidents in downtown Indianapolis.

With reports of more teens in town and warmer weather expected throughout the night, IMPD increased their presence in downtown but not before incidents of fighting were reported in areas around the Louisiana Street, Maryland Street, Illinois Street and the Union Station area.

Around 9:45 p.m. Saturday night, police responded to a report of shots being fired at Capitol and Washington. There they arrested one person from that incident.

Then throughout the rest of the evening and into early Sunday morning, arrests were made for “rowdiness” in the Georgia and Illinois Street areas.
