INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.-- Indianapolis Metropolitan police detectives are looking for the driver of a red Nissan Altima suspected in the shooting of a driver near downtown Monday morning in a road rage case.
The driver of a green van was westbound on East Michigan Street approaching Pine Street near the North Split when a single shot was fired just before 10:30 a.m., sending the van to the curb as a female passenger grabbed the steering wheel. Police were looking for a white male in his 30s with red-brown hair, full red beard and a mustache. They said the car appeared to be a newer model Altima.
Detectives were told the van had swerved into the path of the Nissan moments before the incident. The driver of the van, 25-year-old Reginald Hendricks, was rushed into surgery at Eskenazi Hospital. Police say he is in critical condition as of Tuesday.
Investigators canvassed the warehouse district east of downtown and while no witnesses were discovered, a surveillance video of the fleeing vehicle was recovered from the camera system of a nearby building.
The Nissan was spotted driving away eastbound on Vermont Street.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-TIPS.
