INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) detectives arrested two teen males in connection to a shooting that injured a 15-year-old female.
IMPD Aggravated Assault detectives arrested a 17-year-old and 15-year-old on Sunday, January 22, about two and a half weeks after a 15-year-old girl was shot on Wysong Drive.
The Wysong Drive shooting took place just after 8 p.m. on January 5.
Police found a 15-year-old female inside a home on Wysong Drive who had been shot.
