INDIANAPOLIS — An employee at an Indianapolis plasma center was shot during an attempted robbery early Wednesday morning.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers responded to the scene at the Saturn Biomedical Plasma Center at 3902 Madison Avenue around 6 a.m. for a report of a person shot.

Arriving officers found a female victim who had been shot in the leg. The woman told police she had just come into the business to start her day when two men came in and demanded money. When she told them she didn't have anything, she said they shot her.

The woman was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The victim told police the suspects fled in a black SUV in an unknown direction after the shooting.

Police are working to obtain surveillance video from inside the business and do not have any further suspect descriptions at this time.

The shooting remains under investigation.
