INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (March 22, 2016) — A 14-year-old is in serious condition after being shot on the city’s near southeast side late Monday night.

Police responded to the 1700 block of Southern Avenue just after 11:30 pm on reports of shots fired.

When they arrived on scene, officers found a 14-year-old boy suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

Police say the victim was in a vehicle smoking marijuana and was shot by another person in the vehicle after an argument over a firearm and narcotics. According to officers, the suspect fled after the shooting.

The victim was transported to Riley in serious condition.

Officials with IMPD tell us this was not a random incident, and the victim has a past criminal record.
