The Broad Ripple Village Association has released a statement following a Friday morning shooting that injured four people.
BRVA Executive Director Brooke Klejnot released the following statement:
“The Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) is a community organization representing residents and businesses of the Broad Ripple Village. We are disheartened by the incident that occurred early this morning. The BRVA meets with IMPD and City leadership regularly to address public safety concerns in the area. We will continue our emphasis on public safety in the Village to create a safe environment for our late-night patrons. We encourage all residents and business owners to remain diligent in helping to be eyes and ears for IMPD; be aware of your surroundings and report all suspicious activity to 911.
“In addition to the advocacy and beautification efforts the BRVA manages, we have added five new programs in the area of public safety over the past year: Block Club Program, Bike Patrol Partnership, Kickoff to a Safe Summer, National Night Out, and Lighting. All of these programs are made possible by community support and participation. To support the BRVA and to further our public safety programs, please visit brva.org.”
Tristan Crayton claims he shot three other men in self-defense after he and a friend were kicked out of the RA Niteclub. A fourth person was hit by a stray bullet.
Crayton now faces charges of battery with injury and criminal recklessness.
