INDIANAPOLIS, IND. - Residents who live near Talbott Street on the Northside of Indianapolis say they heard a gunshot and saw police lights early Sunday morning after a woman was shot in the arm during a robbery.

“It was a loud pop, just one pop. I know what a gunshot sounds like,” says a neighbor.

The woman told police she was sitting in her car around 1 a.m. on Sunday when a man armed with a gun approached her car, opened the driver's side door, and told her to give him everything she had.

“It makes me nervous, it does,” says a resident who lives nearby the scene.

The suspect reportedly grabbed the woman’s cellphone, pointed the gun at her and demanded money. She told him she did not have any, and that's when the woman says the suspect shot her.

“It seems like a random thing, but I certainly hope that it is not repeated,” says a neighbor.

The woman suffered a graze wound to her left bicep and told police there was more than one suspect at the time of the shooting.

“I’m shocked that it was that close, that really does make me nervous that it is happening and that it is something so random,” says a resident.

Neighbors say they received a notification from the "Next Door" app on their smart phones and will continue to stay alert and report suspicious activity in the area.

“Everyone should be cautious, look around when you are getting out of your car and make sure there is not a car pulling right up next to you,” says a woman who lives nearby.

Police are searching for more than one suspect in this case. If you have any information on the shooting, call IMPD or Crime Stoppers.
