Police arrest 19-year-old in east side shooting that left her, 4 others injured

Eight people were injured in overnight shootings and IMPD said five of those injuries happened in the same east Indianapolis shooting incident.

INDIANAPOLIS — A total of eight people were injured in overnight shootings in Indianapolis early Sunday and, police said, a 19-year-old was arrested for her involvement in one of those shootings, which left her and four others injured. 

IMPD aggravated assault detectives arrested Raniya Lee, 19, for her role in a shooting at the Warren Harbor apartment complex located in the 9200 block of Sussex Terrace, near the intersection of East 21st Street and Post Road. 

IMPD said officers were called to the area just before 1:30 a.m. Sunday on a report of a person shot. When officers arrived, they found two women who had been shot. Both were taken to area hospitals. One of the women was in critical condition and IMPD said the other was "awake and breathing."

Monday, police said one of the victims was paralyzed.

While detectives were at the scene investigating, Lee walked into Community East Hospital with a graze wound. Officers were on their way to the hospital when another victim, also a teenage girl, walked into the same hospital with a gunshot wound. Police did not share the extent of either of their injuries other than reporting both were "awake and breathing." 

Just before 6:30 a.m., a woman walked into Community North Hospital, located on the northeast side of Indianapolis, with another graze wound.

IMPD confirmed three other people were also injured in separate, unrelated overnight shootings. The three were also reported to be "awake and breathing" by IMPD.
