INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis man was sentenced Thursday for his role in a Feb. 2023 shooting at Castleton Square Mall.

Curtis Wilson, 19, was convicted of two counts of Criminal Recklessness, a Level 5 Felony in February 2024. On Thursday, he was sentenced to four years in prison.

On Friday, Feb. 17, 2023, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were called to the mall, located at 6020 E. 82nd St., on reports of shots fired and a person shot at 3:30 p.m.

IMPD says Wilson and a group of friends were at the mall when they encountered another group they had previous disagreements with.

When the two groups passed each other, IMPD says Wilson grabbed a firearm from his brother’s hip and chased the group out of the mall, where a shootout occurred.

Wilson was shot in the leg during the incident. No one else was injured.

The mall was placed on a lockdown as a result of the shooting.

“We will not tolerate young people acting recklessly and endangering others in public — especially when there are firearms involved,” Marion County Prosecutor Ryan Mears said. “We are lucky that no one else was injured during this incident. I am thankful for the quick action of law enforcement and the businesses and witnesses that aided in this successful prosecution.”
