"I heard the gunshots," a woman who lived on the street where the shooting occurred told WTHR. "Probably seven, eight, 10, maybe. It sounded like a lot."
Police said they did not have a description of the shooter, WXIN reported. There has been no reported motive.
"It's really too early to tell what led up to this," Mike Hewitt, a spokesman for the Indianapolis Metro Police Department, told WTHR. "I know the detectives right now are separating witnesses and they're spending time talking with those witnesses to try and get an idea exactly who the suspect is and exactly what led up to this."
