INDIANAPOLIS (July 14, 2014) – The SWAT team was called to the east side of Indianapolis Monday after a person was wounded in the neck.
It happened around noon in apartments located in the 3600 block of Wingate Terrace. Upon arrival, officers located an man inside the apartment with significant neck trauma. He was taken to Eskenazi Hospital in critical condition.
