INDIANAPOLIS — Police are investigating after a northside man was shot while allegedly fleeing a gunman on Indy’s northwest side.

According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, officers responded to a report of a person shot at around 11:30 a.m. in the 4900 block of Amaryllis Court, a residential area near W. 56th and Georgetown.

Later investigation concluded the incident actually began in the 5700 block of Pin Oak Way in the Eagle Creek North community.

Police and a witness told FOX59 News that the man was driving southbound on Pine Oak Way in a white 2021 Dodge Ram truck when he appeared to pull over while being followed by four juveniles in a white Ford Taurus.

Investigators say the man then ran from his parked truck eastbound across a grassy berm onto the driveway of a home on Amaryllis Court while an assailant was in pursuit who was firing a gun.

The man was shot in the leg and face but was able to answer questions when officers first arrived on scene.

Police say the man was listed as being in critical condition.

Witnesses told police they spotted the white Ford fleeing the scene. The Dodge Ram was discovered an hour later parked at the Garden Pointe Apartments near 52nd and Georgetown, less than a mile from the shooting.

Detectives were waiting for the shooting victim to undergo surgery before questioning him about why he apparently pulled over for the driver of the Ford.

Investigators were recovering surveillance video from both locations as IMPD continues its search for the armed juveniles.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers at (317) 262-TIPS.
