10-year-old in stable condition after shooting on Indy's east side

Police were called to 21st Street and Colorado Avenue early Saturday morning to investigate a shooting.

INDIANAPOLIS — IMPD Aggravated Assault detectives are investigating an early Saturday morning shooting on the city's east side that sent a 10-year-old boy to the hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.

Police were called to a neighborhood near Forest Manor Park in the 4100 block of 21st Street near Colorado Avenue shortly after 1:30 a.m. to investigate a shooting, and found the boy in the house.

Neighbors told 13News they were shocked when they heard about the shooting. 

"The neighborhood itself, we do have a few problems, but right here in this area, everybody gets along. All the neighbors help each other," one neighbor said.

The boy was taken to the hospital in stable condition. 

"I don't know them personally. I've seen them out on the porch. Two boys, I believe, young boys. And I see them when they walk from the corner on Colorado after they get off the school bus," a neighbor said.

Investigators have not shared how he was shot or what led to the shooting.
