INDIANAPOLIS — Shots were fired by shoplifters and a customer at a Lowes Monday morning.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were called to the Lowes at 975 Beechway Drive just after 11 a.m. for a report of shots fired during a possible shoplifting incident.

Arriving officers spoke to witnesses who told them that two people were shoplifting from the store when at least one of them fired shots. It is unclear why the suspected shoplifter fired a weapon, but police say around the same time a customer also fired his gun.

No one was hit and police are still working to determine whether the shots were fired inside or outside the business.

Police have not made any arrests at this time.

The incident remains under investigation.
