INDIANAPOLIS — IMPD is investigating after a man was injured in a shooting on Indianapolis' near northwest side Thursday morning.
Shortly before 4:30 a.m., officers responded to the 2100 block of Gent Avenue, near West 22nd and North Harding streets, for a report of shots fired.
Officers located shell casings and then discovered a man inside a home who had been shot twice, once in the arm and once in the chest, police said.
Police said they believe the shots were fired into the house from the street.
The man was transported to IU Health Methodist Hospital in stable condition.
Neighbors in the area say they are frustrated.
“My husband happened to get up this morning and saw it on the news,” said Patricia Witkins, who has lived in the neighborhood for 60 years. “This is ridiculous.”
A closer look at the home shows at least three dozen bullet holes.
Witkins said she knows one of the men who lives there.
“You can’t even stay in your own house and mind your own business. You don't know if you are safe anymore. Everywhere you go there are all these crimes,” she said.
As of early Thursday, police said there was no suspect information in the case.
Anyone with information on the incident can contact Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.
