Police: 5 people shot overnight at Indianapolis bar
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis police are investigating an overnight shooting at a bar that left five people hospitalized with gunshot wounds.
Deputy Chief Valerie Cunningham tells WXIN-TV that officers responding to a reported disturbance about 2 a.m. Saturday at the Brotherman Tavern found “pandemonium” at the scene.
She says officers found three people with apparent gunshot wounds and began providing life-saving aid.
All three were reported in critical or serious condition.
While officers were investigating the shooting, they learned that two other people who were shot at the bar had left the scene and were admitted at a local hospital in stable condition.
Sgt. Jim Gillespie tells The Indianapolis Star that police believe someone involved in an earlier disturbance at the bar may have left the scene and returned and opened fire.
