INDIANAPOLIS — One person killed and two others injured in two shootings late Wednesday in Indianapolis.

Indianapolis Metro Police were called to an Exxon gas station along East 46th Street at North Arlington just before midnight.

Officers arrived and found two men with gunshot wounds inside a vehicle. One of the men was dead. The other man was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

At around 11:15 p.m., officers found a man shot off Rockville Road near I-465 on the city’s west side.

The man was taken to the hospital in critical condition, says IMPD.

“I strongly encourage that if you see something that looks like there’s about to be a fight or something of that nature, don’t go there,” said IMPD Capt. Mike Leeper. “Leave and call 911 immediately and get the police there.”

Leeper says crime is down, including in areas like the city’s east side.

“Our officers are doing their due diligence with the resources they have at their disposal to actively patrol our neighborhoods, to engage areas where we have high reports of criminal activity,” Leeper said. “We’re seeing that as a deterrent and we’re seeing the results of that when the numbers come in and we see that violent crime is down, robberies are down, aggravated assaults are down as well as homicides.”

Police did not share information on suspects in either shooting.
