Seven Juveniles Shot in Mass Shooting Near Indianapolis Mall

Authorities reported that seven juveniles suffered from injuries in an incident outside a mall in downtown Indianapolis over the weekend.

“Officers from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police were conducting routine patrols when they were alerted by the sound of gunfire shortly after 11:30 p.m. Upon arriving quickly, they located the shooting near the Circle Center Mall. Six individuals were found with gunshot wounds when officers arrived,” The Gateway Pundit reported.

Tanya Terry, deputy chief of operations for Indianapolis Metropolitan Police, said the shooting was “deeply concerning.”

“Once again, we have a situation where young people are resolving conflict with firearms, and it has to stop,” Terry said.

Terry told reporters that officers have noticed a pattern of young people leaving the mall after it closes at 7 p.m. and gathering downtown area nearby for hours. 

“I think everybody sees the messages in the evening at 10 o’clock, ‘parents do you know where your children are?’” Terry said. “And we would ask for our parents to get involved in what their children are out doing, especially at these hours of the evening.”
