INDIANAPOLIS — Two girls, ages 2 and 5, have been released from the hospital after they were shot Friday night on the city’s east side.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and ambulances were called on a report of a person shot shortly before 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6 in the 3000 block of Colorado Avenue. That’s a residential area north of 30th Street between North Sherman Drive and Massachusetts Avenue.

Police have said the two children were left unattended in a room with a loaded 12-gauge shotgun in the closet.

IMPD said a parent left to go the store right before the shooting took place.

The case will be presented to the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, according to IMPD.
