INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Detectives with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police are investigating a gunfight that broke out in the combined parking area of a Denny’s restaurant, Circle K gas station and Wendy’s restaurant near 25th and Post Drive late Thursday.

Remarkably, no one was injured despite the fact that more than 30 rounds of ammunition were fired, according to investigators.

An off-duty Hendricks County sheriff’s deputy was pumping gas at the Circle K around 11 p.m. when he saw a shootout between two men unfold.

The deputy chased one of the armed suspects running east of the restaurant across Post Road, and that man was apprehended.

Meanwhile, the second gunman headed west and managed to escape. A police perimeter was put into place and authorities continue searching for the suspect.

A car that had been shot up was found in the Wendy’s parking lot. Investigators say it belongs to the apprehended suspect.

Police are investigating what prompted the shootout.
