Police: 1-year-old dead, woman hurt in Indianapolis shooting

March 29, 2018

Police say a 1-year-old girl is dead and a 19-year-old woman was wounded after more than 20 shots were fired at a home in Indianapolis.

The shooting happened early Thursday. Police said the woman was shot in the shoulder and was expected to survive. Indianapolis police Sgt. Chris Wilburn says the child “senselessly” lost her life and officers’ “hearts are broken” after the shooting.

Police say about a dozen people were in the home at the time of the shooting, mostly members of the same family. The Indianapolis Star reported evidence markers showed at least 21 bullet holes in the home.

The shooting is under investigation, but Wilburn told reporters at the scene an earlier dispute may have escalated into the home being targeted. He said it “isn’t random.”
