INDIANAPOLIS — A popular local comedian said he was targeted in a “shots fired” incident in Indianapolis overnight Sunday.
Ronald Sexton, better known for his Donnie Baker persona on “The Bob & Tom Show,” was listed on an incident report from Dec. 11.
Just before 2 a.m., someone fired shots at Sexton on N. Shadeland Avenue near I-465 and 82nd Street.
Sexton told FOX59 he got a good look at the shooter.
According to Sexton, he had performed a set on Saturday night in Portland, Indiana and met up with someone afterward to get food at a bar and grill near Shadeland and E. 75th Street.
As he later left the restaurant, the shooter pulled on up Sexton’s car, shot several times, and then sped off.
Sexton was not seriously injured in the incident, but a photo shows an abrasion on his earlobe.
According to the report, one male suspect was identified, and the investigation is ongoing.
IMPD said based on preliminary reports, the incident does not appear to be a random act.
If anyone has any information about this incident or potentially has video from about 1:45-1:55 a.m. Sunday between the 8000 and 8200 block of N. Shadeland Avenue, they are asked to contact Detective Ryan Gootee at Ryan.Gootee@indy.gov.
