INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Indianapolis Metropolitan police are investigating a double shooting at business on the west side

According to IMPD, the shooting happened outside C&C Liquors in the 5400 block of West 34th Street just east of Moller Road. Two adult males were shot, and neither remained at the liquor store after it happened. Investigators received reports that 15 to 20 shots were fired, including some that made it inside the liquor store.

One of the men went to a nearby restaurant, where police found he'd been shot in the upper half of his body. He was taken to Eskenazi Hospital and told police he didn't know what happened other than someone shot him. The second victim showed up at Eskenazi a short time later; he'd been hit in the leg.

"Before we arrived, both of those individuals had fled the scene," said Capt. Harold Turner with IMPD. "We did locate one individual just west of here at the fish and chicken restaurant. This adult male is in stable condition at Eskenazi Hospital."

Witnesses described seeing a man running from the scene toward a nearby apartment complex--a possible suspect--but officers didn't have any additional information about the individual.

"We don't have a good description nor are the two individual males that were shot cooperating or providing any names or information as to what happened," Turner. "The employee inside is safe, so that's good news."

At this point, officers on the scene said they believed the victims were targeted, since they left the scene of the shooting and haven't cooperated with the investigation.
