Two Indianapolis Shootings Leave Investigators Looking For Connection

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (www.TheIndyChannel.com) - Two men were injured after a shooting on the city’s northeast side Tuesday afternoon.

The shooting happened in the 3900 block of North Emerson Avenue just after 4:30 p.m.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Kendale Adams said one victim was shot more than once and was found in the street. That victim was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital in critical condition but was later upgraded to fair condition. A second male suffering from a gunshot wound took himself to Indiana University Methodist Hospital.

The shooting happened not far from Monday afternoon’s fatal shooting.

Police did not confirm that the shootings were related, but were investigating any potential connection between the two incidents.

The recent string of violence has the community concerned.

A mother of a 2012 homicide victim said people committing the irrevocable violent acts need to consider the impact to the community and the families of the victims.

"Losing my son has made this whole situation really relevant to me. So whenever I hear someone else losing their son, their daughter, it's almost like me losing my son again because I know exactly how they feel," Sabrinna Stennette said.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-TIPS (8477).
