INDIANAPOLIS — Between early Sunday morning and early Tuesday morning, 11 people have been shot in separate shootings throughout Indianapolis, six of those people shot are dead.
Two of the shootings had more than one victim. One person was found dead along Musket Street just off Shadeland early late Sunday evening less than a block away from Community Hospital North where another person walked in with a gunshot wound and is stable.
“IMPD Homicide Detectives responded to (both scenes) to begin the investigation,” said Ofc. Samone Burris. “Preliminary information leads detectives to believe these incidents are connected, however further investigation is required.”
Monday afternoon saw nine people shot in the span of just a few hours.
At around 3:00 p.m. Labor Day, Metro Police were called to an area along 25th Street on the east side just south of I-70. A woman was found shot to death.
Shortly before 4:00 Monday two more were shot near Washington and Davidson downtown and one of them was killed. Not long after that, officers were called to a home near Washington and State Ave.
“When officers arrived, they located a male teenager who sustained injuries consistent with a gunshot wound,” said Ofc. William Young. “Officers rendered aid until IEMS arrived and transported the victim to an area hospital. Shortly after arriving at the hospital, the victim was pronounced deceased.”
Then later in the evening at around 7:00, officers were called South Pasadena Street in the East Indy Mobile Estates where a man had been shot to death.
Lastly, early Tuesday a person was shot and killed on the west side of Indy along Glen Arm Ct., near 34th and High School Road. A little later on another person was at that apartment complex near 25th and Keystone.
“We can’t put an officer on every street. People have to police themselves, almost,” said Ofc. Young. “It’s frustrating. We have got to come to some type of resolution where we understand how to deal with conflict resolution without picking up a firearm and hurting someone.”
