Teenage boy in critical condition after a ‘tragic’ shooting on Halloween night

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A boy in his late teens was critically injured in a “tragic” east side shooting on Halloween night, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

IMPD says officers were called to the scene in the 3600 block of North Wittfield St. shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday.

When police arrived, they found the male suffering from at least one gunshot wound inside a residence. He was then transported to Eskenazi Hospital in critical condition.

Police believe the victim shot himself. Investigators are still trying to figure out if this shooting was accidental or on-purpose. They are not calling it a suicide.
