INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Police say eight people were wounded in a burst of gunfire in downtown Indianapolis during the Indiana Black Expo and two more in separate shootings that followed.
Police spokesman Lt. Jeff Duhamell said early Sunday that authorities made no immediate arrests directly tied to the shootings and were seeking those responsible. He says none of the injuries was life-threatening.
Police say the victims were males ages 10 to 18. Duhamell says hundreds in a crowd scattered when shots first erupted about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, adding a man was wounded nearby in another shooting minutes later and the last man in a shooting about 11:30 p.m.
Duhamell says investigators were trying to determine if the shootings were gang-related. None occurred at the event’s venues.
