INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the burglary of a west side gun story Wednesday morning.

Officers responded to investigate after multiple alarms went off at 500 Guns, located in the 3600 block of West 16th Street, around 3:15 a.m.

When they arrived, they found the store’s security bars ripped off the front wall. Police believe one or more suspects tore the bars from the wall using their vehicle.

The burglars stole at least one gun with a second gun found just outside the store. However, the gun store owner told police he believes the burglars made off with many more guns because he could see at least four cases damaged.

In order to determine exactly how many guns were stolen, the owner will conduct an inventory sometime Wednesday.

Anyone with information about this incident should call CrimeStoppers at 317-262-TIPS (8477).  Callers can also text “INDYCS” plus tip information to 274627(CRIMES).
