INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– Police say a 16-year-old boy was injured in a shooting Friday evening on the west side.

Officers were called to the Addison Creek Apartments near the 5700 block of Port Lillian Drive around 7:15 p.m.

The teenage victim was found with a gunshot wound and taken to Eskenazi Health in critical condition. At one point, the victim had to be medically revived.

Investigators believe two male suspects came out of the woods while the victim and his nephew were playing soccer at the apartment complex.

They approached the victim and argued, possibly over a pair of shoes the victim was wearing. It’s not believed that the two parties involved knew each other. Police described the suspects as two black males– one wore a red bandanna and the other wore a gray sweatshirt.

Police say robbery may be a motive. This story is developing.
