INDIANAPOLIS — Five people, including a 7-year-old girl, were injured in shootings between Sunday night and Monday morning in Indianapolis, police said.

Police found the 7-year-old girl who was shot in the neck. Medics transported her to Riley Hospital for Children in stable condition.

About a half-hour later, IMPD reported a person walked into Community East Hospital with a gunshot wound. Police did not provide a condition for the victim.

IMPD investigated another shooting early Monday on the northwest side. According to police, a man was critically wounded after he was shot before 3 a.m. near West 71st Street and Georgetown Road.

IMPD officers responded about an hour later to a shooting at a hotel in the 4900 block of South East Street after 4 a.m. Officers found two victims with gunshot wounds who were "awake and breathing."

Police have not released information about what might have led to any of the shootings.
