INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Metro police say a 16-year-old boy was taken to the hospital in critical condition after a shooting just before 1 a.m. Friday on the far east side.

The shooting happened on Lake Terrace Drive near 21st Street west of Mitthoeffer Road.

Detectives have not shared what may have led to the shooting, or named any suspects.

A public police report says an officer was flagged down as multiple people were seen running behind a building near the shooting.

Police also found a stolen vehicle with bullet holes at the scene.

This story corrects a previous version that indicated the victim was a man. Police have now confirmed the victim was 16 years old.
