Police believe someone fired gunshots from outside a home near 10th and North Rural streets Monday around 6 a.m.

INDIANAPOLIS — IMPD is investigating after a woman and an 11-year-old boy were shot on the city's near east side Monday morning.

Police responded to a report of shots fired in the 900 block of Beville Avenue, near 10th and North Rural streets, shortly after 6 a.m.

When police got to the home, they found a woman and an 11-year-old boy who had been shot. The boy was taken to Riley Hospital for Children, while the woman went to Methodist Hospital for her injuries. Police said both victims are in stable condition.

13News spoke with neighbors who live along the street who said the incident comes as a shock. 

"It's very shocking. I mean, I've never felt unsafe," Elizabeth Foster said. "I've never seen any sort of crime, like not even petty crime, let alone a shooting on this street."

According to a preliminary investigation, police believe someone fired gunshots from outside the home.

"The kids that live there come down and play with my kids in the yard and so it's pretty scary," Foster added. "I hope everyone is fine and they figure it out and it doesn't happen again, obviously."

Police have not shared any information about a suspect or motive at this time. However, they believe there is no active threat to the public.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call IMPD detectives at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.
