INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (October 15, 2015) – Jarret Doss,20,is in the hospital after what police are calling a home invasion on the city’s near west side.

Police say Dass was shot around 1 a.m. Thursday in the 1500 block of Winfield Ave.

Dass’ parents say he heard a knock on the door and when he answered there were three men who force their way in and shot Dass once in the chest.

“It got him just a couple of inches above his heart, it went through and through. He had to have his lung re-inflated,” said Roger Dass.

Once Dass was shot, he somehow found the strength to call 911.

“If my son hadn’t got to the phone to call 911 himself he would have died,” said Dass.

“My God! Who would do it? You couldn’t ask for a better young neighbor,” said neighbor Delores Mundy.

Police say robbery appears to be the motive.

“They stole his TV and his play station 4 and his paychecks,” said Dass.

Officers on the scene said the victim was shot once in the chest and was transported to Eskenazi Hospital.

According to police, the victim told officers that he was shot inside his home by a group of three males.

At this point there have been no arrests in this case and there is no detailed suspect description.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS (8477).
