INDIANAPOLIS — IMPD is investigating a shooting in Broad Ripple that left three people injured, including one victim in critical condition.
Shortly after midnight Saturday, IMPD responded to the intersection of 64th Street and Keystone Avenue for a report of a person shot. While en route, they received a second call to the intersection of Broad Ripple Avenue and Keystone Avenue on another report of a person shot.
When police arrived, they located a vehicle in the road with a person shot inside. As officers continued to search the area and respond to the two scenes, they ended up locating what appeared to be three vehicles involved in the shooting and three victims involved.
“That’s very troubling when you have two groups of individuals at this point in time based off this preliminary investigation that appears were shooting each other in the middle of the street,” IMPD Nightwatch Capt. Michael Leepper said.
At this point we know that two of the victims are adult females and one is an adult male. All victims were transported to a local trauma center with apparent gunshot wounds. Based on the crime scene, police have reason to believe there might have been an innocent victim caught in the crossfire of the shooting in their vehicle. That person is said to be in stable condition.
“This is unacceptable behavior in a world class city like Indianapolis and we want to make sure that our agency has all the right resources available to them, including witnesses and people in this community to stand up and say enough is enough, that is not acceptable for the city of Indianapolis and for our community,” said Leepper. “We’re tired of seeing innocent people hurt by violence, specifically by gun violence, that’s why we want to take every measure to ensure that witnesses and people that have information related to crimes can relay that information to police safely.”
At this point, police say that two of the three victims are in stable condition and that all individuals that were involved were contained in one of the three vehicles, including the suspects.
IMPD is asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
According to the most recent non-fatal shooting data provided by IMPD, which was on April 22, 174 people had been shot and survived in 2022. That’s 43 fewer people than at that time in 2021, but still far more than any recent year.
