INDIANAPOLIS — A heavy presence of Indianapolis police descended on a neighborhood on the city's west side early Monday evening.

There, inside a house in the 5100 block of Chelsea Road, a person refused to come out after being ordered to by police. The area is near South Lynhurst Drive and Plainfield Avenue.

A pubic information officer with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said the suspect may be connected to a late-afternoon shooting a few miles away on North Berwick.

And, a second shooting in the same area is also under investigation for a possible connection to the other incident.
