INDIANAPOLIS — A person was seriously injured in a shooting Friday evening on the southeast side of Indianapolis.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were called around 8 p.m. to the area of Southeastern and South Arlington Avenues on the report of a person shot, IMPD Officer Michael Hewitt said in an email.

A witness stated to police that a disturbance shortly before the shooting involved two female adults and two cars. The witness heard the two females yelling at each other.

Shortly thereafter, the witness told police that a third vehicle pulled up to the liquor store and soon she heard what sounded like a gunshot, according to Maj. Harold Turner.

When police arrived, they located a woman in her 30s suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The woman was taken to Eskenazi in serious condition but is stable, according to Major Turner.

At this time, police do have a person of interest but do not have them custody.

Additional details surrounding the incident have not been released.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477 (TIPS).
