BEECH GROVE, Ind. — An investigation is underway Thursday morning after two people were injured following a shooting outside of a bar.

Officers responded to a shooting call around 3:15 a.m. at Silver Bullet Bar, located at 410 Main Street, and found two males with gunshot wounds in the parking lot inside of a minivan. Both victims were transported to a nearby hospital, where police say they are awake and breathing.

One of the victims is in critical condition but stable after an emergency surgery. The second victim also had surgery.

According to police, a third person may have been involved. Investigators found a shoe and blood on a nearby porch but have not been able to locate that person.

Investigators said a fight started inside the bar but continued in the parking lot, leading to shots being fired.

“When things like that happen, it sheds a bad light on the city of Beech Grove,” Mayor Dennis Buckley said.

Buckley said there were up to 39 evidence markers at the scene.

Buckley stated that he contacted the Marion County Alcoholic Beverage Board to discuss procedures to close the bar down. Buckley said the agency was already aware of the shooting when he contacted them Thursday morning.

Buckley said he spoke with one of the bar’s owners and recommended they close the business. If the owners aren’t willing to close, Buckley said he would start the process to close it himself.

“We’ve had problems here for a long time,” Buckley said. “This is the third person shot in this parking lot in the last year.”

Investigators said two calibers of shell casings were located at the scene, but police haven’t determined if there was an exchange of gunfire.

Officers have been speaking with multiple people who were at the bar at the time of the shooting. Investigators revealed they are reviewing surveillance video from inside the bar with an employer.
