Somebody mowing grass found a rifle that may be connected to the shooting later in the morning.

Police are still working to figure out what happened but believe the people in the house may have been having some type of celebration just before the shooting.

Another person was found injured about a block away. That person was treated at the hospital for cuts from jumping out a window as he was trying to get away. 
 
This is the third straight violent day in Indianapolis.
