Here are 5 things you need to know on this Wednesday morning
RAIN TODAY, SUNSHINE TOMORROW:
It's going to be a soggy morning for the heart of central Indiana as heavy showers rotate south to north around an upper level disturbance in central Illinois. This puts the Indianapolis metro in the cross hairs of downpours, and metro commuters will need to be mindful of some street flooding for the drive into work. Rain should become more scattered during the afternoon, though locally heavy storms are possible during daytime heating. As the upper disturbance breaks down later today, spotty showers overnight will diminish and pave the way for a brighter, warmer Thursday. Highs tomorrow will shoot back into the lower to mid 80s under a mostly sunny sky.
STORM DAMAGE IN CENTRAL INDIANA:
The Hamilton County EMA will be going through storm damage areas today. They're looking into an isolated storm last night that caused damage in the Bristols Neighborhood. Neighbors say there were lots of downed trees, tossed lawn furniture and other debris thrown all over the neighborhood. Residents we talked with last night believe a tornado caused all the damage, but that hasn't been confirmed by the National Weather Service. Hamilton County officials will be meeting with them this morning to assess the damage.
IMPD detectives are investigating another shooting overnight, after a man showed up at Methodist Hospital with gunshot wounds. Police have been searching for shell casings overnight near 16th and Tacoma Avenue. Homicide detectives have been at Methodist hospital to investigate as well. No word yet on the severity of the injuries to the victim. Police are also questioning a female who drove the victim to the hospital.
MAN CAUGHT TRYING TO BREAK INTO DON'S GUNS:
Metro Police say they captured a man attempting to break into a Don's Guns store on the west side of Indianapolis. Police were called to the store near 38th and Lafayette Road around 2:30 this morning. Police called an IFD ladder truck to the scene after the suspect was trapped in the attic. He slid down the gutter in the back of the building where he was greeted by K-9 officers. Video surveillance in the store helped police confirm that the suspect was the man inside the store.
MEMORIAL FOR FRANKLIN TEENAGER:
Friends, family and the community of Franklin will gather today to pay their last respects to a teenager who drowned while trying to save a friend. 17 year-old Jason Moran was pulled from the Big Blue River Sunday. Moran, along with Michael Chadborne, were trying to save Sarah McLevish, who was swept over the dam. Chadborne died from his injuries. McLevish remains hospitalized in critical condition. Visitation for Jason Moran is this afternoon at 1:00 at the Franklin High School Gym with a special service taking place tonight at 7:00.
