INDIANAPOLIS — A man is in “very critical” condition following a shooting Sunday afternoon on Indianapolis’ south side.

Indianapolis Metro police were called just before 6 p.m. to Community Hospital South for a walk-in gunshot victim. The victim, who had been driven to the hospital after being shot, was in critical condition, IMPD said.

The incident, police said, actually occurred in the 8200 block of S. Delaware Street. A preliminary investigation shows that a family party was going on in the Hill Valley neighborhood when a disturbance started between family members.

The disturbance turned to gunfire, police said, leaving one adult male victim in “very critical” condition. IMPD has taken a person of interest into custody and the victim remains at Community South.

“You need to step back and take a deep breath, let’s not resort to violence,” IMPD Capt. Don Weilhammer said on scene. “And you know there’s many programs out there, if there are people they need to talk to to solve their problems there are many professionals out there that are more than willing to try and help them.”
