INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Indianapolis Metropolitan police are investigating a pair of shootings around Indianapolis Monday morning and said both could be connected.
In the first case, officers were called to the 1400 block of North Gladstone Avenue in response to a report of a person shot around 4:45 a.m. Police found the victim awake and breathing. Aggravated assault detectives were called to the scene.
About 45 minutes later, officers were called to the northeast side of Indianapolis at East 52nd Place and Mark Lane. A person was also shot at that location and aggravated assault detectives were sent to investigate.
In the second shooting, police said a middle-aged man was shot in the chest and was expected to survive. The shooting victim was riding a bike at the time. According to a report from IMPD, the suspect asked the man about his dog and then fired a pair of shots. The shooting victim went to Eskenazi Hospital.
Police said a car, a dark-colored Chevrolet Impala, similar to one spotted at the site of the Gladstone shooting was reported in the area. That’s why investigators believe the two shootings may be linked.
