INDIANAPOLIS — Police have arrested a woman for her alleged involvement in the shooting of a 5-year-old girl Saturday on Indianapolis’ northwest side, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department announced Wednesday.

The shooting happened at 3902 Glen Arm Road shortly after 6 p.m.

When officers arrived, they found a 5-year-old girl suffering from a gunshot wound. She was taken to Riley Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Moore faces charges of aggravated battery, criminal recklessness and carrying a handgun without a license. The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will review the case and determine final charges.

“Members of the community were essential to identifying the alleged suspect and being able to make an arrest,” IMPD said in a release. “This highlights the importance of police-community relationships.”
