BLOOMINGTON — Two people were injured in a shooting early Sunday morning in Bloomington.

Around 2 a.m., a Bloomington Police Officer was near South Grant Street and East Smith Avenue and heard gunshots, BPD Sgt. Jason Shaevitz said in a press release. He then saw hundreds of people running from a nearby party, then more gunshots.

The officer later located a 23-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman who had been shot, Shaevitz said. They were taken to IU Health Bloomington Hospital in stable condition.

A 20-year-old man was arrested after running away from police, Shaevitz said. He was charged on the suspicion of resisting law enforcement, criminal recklessness with a firearm, theft, possession of marijuana, and illegal consumption.

Investigators believe there were two shooters involved in the incident, Shaevitz said.

Several vehicles and buildings in the area were damaged by the gunfire, Shaevitz said.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Detective Josh Burnsworth at 812-349-3363.
