Easter Mall Shooting in Indianapolis Leaves at Least Seven Minors Wounded


Seven minors were injured in a shooting outside a shopping mall in downtown Indianapolis on Saturday night, police said.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Deputy Chief Tanya Terry said officers were patrolling the area near the Circle Centre Mall when they heard shots fired shortly after 11:30 p.m., according to The Associated Press.

They found “a large group of juveniles” at the scene, including six who had gunshot wounds and were transported to area hospitals, Terry said during a news briefing at the scene early on Sunday morning. All were aged between 12 and 17.

One of the victims was upgraded from critical to stable condition, Terry said. The others were listed in stable condition.

A seventh victim with a gunshot wound arrived separately at a hospital and was in stable condition, she said.

Newsweek has contacted the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department for further comment via email.
