INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — A man was shot early Saturday morning on the east side of Indianapolis, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

911 operators received a call at approximately 2:30 a.m. in reference to a person being shot at a residence in the 900 block of North Grant Avenue. Responding officers located one man who was suffering from an apparent gun shot wound to the body, IMPD says.

The victim was taken to the Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Health Hospital for treatment. He was listed as being in stable condition and is expected to survive his injuries.

Detectives with IMPD were dispatched and quickly began interviewing witnesses. Police say it appears the shooting involved a group of friends and that this was an isolated incident. None of the friends would cooperate with investigators.

This is an ongoing investigation.
