“I called 911 and ran out there,” she says. “The guy was bleeding, so I ran inside this Mexican restaurant and got some napkins. Another woman was helping him. So we put the napkins on him, and then I just waited until the cops got here.”

According to IMPD, the victim, who was shot once in the neck, was taken to a local hospital in critical condition but is expected to survive. The 31-year-old shooter remained at the scene and was detained by Southeast District officers, who found a handgun and a shotgun in his vehicle.

After a preliminary investigation by IMPD Aggravated Assault Detectives, the shooter was arrested for Battery with a deadly weapon resulting in serious bodily injury, a Level 5 Felony.
