INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 11, 2015) – A woman suffering from multiple gunshot wounds was found inside a truck in downtown Indianapolis Wednesday afternoon.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said the driver of a pickup truck traveling west on Market Street tried to “frantically” get the attention of a police officer passing by around 1:35 p.m. The truck stopped near the City-County Building downtown.
Police said a woman suffering from multiple gunshot wounds was found inside the truck. She was taken to Eskenazi Health, where she is listed in critical condition. Sources initially indicated the victim had died, but the woman is alive.
Just spoke with IMPD PIO who said the woman was in extremely critical condition, and that she's "not expected to make it," but she's alive.
