INDIANAPOLIS — A man is in critical condition at an Indianapolis hospital after being shot on the city’s east side, local police said.
Indianapolis Metro police crews were called around 9:20 p.m. Monday to the intersection of E. Washington Street and S. Shortridge Road, near Washington’s intersection with Shadeland Avenue, on report of a person shot.
Upon arrival, IMPD said crews found an adult male suffering from gunshot wounds in the green space next to the McDonald’s on E. Washington. That victim, IMPD said, was taken to Eskenazi Hospital and is in critical condition.
Preliminary information gathered by IMPD detectives suggests the man was inside the McDonald’s before walking outside and getting shot. It is unclear what led up to the shooting, and the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
