INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHR) — There were seven shootings over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, leaving five dead.

The latest shooting happened around 8 Monday night in an alley near Michigan and Sherman. That's where police say a fight broke out and a man opened fire. Two people were shot and one of the victims took off running.

Both shooting victims went to Eskenazi hospital. The man who ran after being shot was in critical condition at the time.

"He ran a good 2 or 3 blocks," said Capt. Harold Turner with IMPD.

Police say the other victim was sitting on his porch in the area and was hit in the leg by a stray bullet.

Investigators spent the early evening talking to witnesses who heard gun shots and may have seen who pulled the trigger.
