State Police Investigate Overnight Shooting on I-465

The Indiana State Police are investigating an overnight shooting that happened around 11:50 p.m. Wednesday night.  The state police were originally dispatched to the area of eastbound I-465 and the southbound I-65 ramp for a reported vehicle crash.  When troopers arrived at the scene they discovered one of the parties involved in the crash had been shot in the neck.

The injured individual was taken by ambulance to Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital where he was treated for a gunshot wound and later released.  Purportedly both parties involved in the crash had confronted each other earlier near the Wheels of Wonder Roller Skating Center in Indianapolis. 

Details about the event remain unclear at this point in the investigation due to an uncooperative victim and witnesses.  Evidence gathered at the scene leads investigators to believe that one of the parties involved shot at the victim in his 2002 Oldsmobile.  The Oldsmobile then collided with the shooters vehicle a 2016 Honda.  No arrests have been made at this time.

Detectives from the Indianapolis Post will continue to work the investigation interviewing witnesses and collecting evidence.  Both vehicles involved in the incident were impounded and will be searched in the next few days once search warrants are obtained. 

No other information is available at this time.  New information will be released as it becomes available.
