INDIANAPOLIS — A 9-year-old girl was taken to the hospital following a shooting on the northwest side, according to IMPD.

Police initially said, based on preliminary information, that the shooting victim had been a teenager. They clarified her age later Tuesday morning.

Officers were sent to the 5300 block of Winterberry Drive, near the intersection of Moller Road and 56th Street, after a “person shot” report.

The 9-year-old victim was found at the scene with an apparent gunshot wound. She was taken to a hospital and was last said to be stable.

Detectives later learned that the girl was in bed at the time of the shooting. They do not believe the apartment was the intended target.

IMPD aggravated assault detectives are investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Scheid at the IMPD Aggravated Assault office at 327-3475 or call CrimeStoppers anonymously at 262-TIPS.
