Another April shooting on Indy’s far east side
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — IMPD says a man was shot three times early Saturday morning on the far east side of Indianapolis.
So far, police have not revealed if any arrests have been made in connection to the shooting.
Just before 1:00 a.m. Saturday, a call was made to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department about a person being shot near the intersection of East 30th Street and North Shadeland Avenue. Responding officers were able to locate a man suffering from gun shot wounds near the area. The victim was apparently shot at least three times. He was hit twice in the abdomen and once in the foot. Responding officers were able to assess the victim was breathing, although he was unresponsive and not awake. He was transported via ambulance to Eskenazi Health hospital for further medical assistance.
Detectives with IMPD were dispatched to the scene to interview any witnesses and gather potential evidence. Police have not released a possible motive for the shooting and have not arrested any suspects. Police are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to contact CRIME STOPPERS of Indiana at (317) 262-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous.
This shooting is just another in an already abnormally high amount of violence in Indianapolis this year. Last week, six people died in a span of less than 24 hours in crimes related to a shooting. In an effort to reduce the violence, community leaders and the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) organized a peace walk across the city Friday evening.
