IMPD Investigates Multiple Shootings in Indianapolis
On the evening of Saturday, October 10th, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) responded to reports of a person shot in the 1900 block of East Washington Street at Willard Park. Upon arriving, officers found two juvenile victims who had apparently been shot, one of whom was taken to a hospital in critical condition and the other remaining on the scene in stable condition.
Later that night, around 10 p.m., officers responded to the 5200 block of E. 38 St., the site of a Conoco Gas Station, to reports of a person shot. There, they found an adult male victim suffering from gunshot wounds and transported him to Methodist Hospital for treatment.
IMPD also responded to reports of a person shot at 1 p.m. in the 2000 block of Beckwith Drive near east 25th Street and North Keystone Avenue, where they found a man with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds, who was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
IMPD has since arrested the second person shot, identified Monday as 38-year-old Christopher Middlebrook, for attempted murder. Investigators believe the shooting occurred after an argument between Middlebrook and the critically injured man.
Anyone with information on any of these incidents is asked to contact Detective Christopher Edwards at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or email [email protected], or Detective Randy Weitzel at the IMPD Aggravated Assault/Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 by email at [email protected]. Alternatively, people can call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477. A team is on its way to the location and we will supply reports as they become available.
