INDIANAPOLIS — It was a violent Wednesday morning in Indianapolis after two people were killed, and five others hurt in multiple shootings across the city.

Two men were found shot and killed inside of a crashed car on the northeast side, around 1:20 a.m., according to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. Officers located the car at Bolton Avenue near East 46th Street and Arlington Avenue, where the shooting victims were found dead in a vehicle that had crashed into trees. One of the men has been identified as 20-year-old Corhon Williams.

A trail of blood was also found by IMPD officers on the scene, and believe a third person was in the car. SWAT teams and K-9 units were sent to look for that individual.

On Indianapolis' northwest side, police say three people were shot at a party just before 1 a.m. on Wednesday. The shooting appeared to have happened at a home on Luxembourg Circle West, near the I-65 and 38th Street interchange.

A man and a woman were taken to the hospital from that party in stable condition.

Around the same time, a fourth shooting victim walked into St. Vincent Hospital on West 86th Street, according to IMPD public information officer William Young. The victim is in stable condition, according to IMPD.

Another man, the fifth shooting victim, is in critical condition at the hospital after officers located him at the McDonald's on 38th Street. IMPD is still unsure what led to this shooting and where exactly it took place.

"People obviously can't get along, so if we can't get along, let's just shoot each other because that just seems to be the proper thing to do now because we have zero sense of having any ability whatsoever to communicate; to deal with any anger issues other than taking a weapon out and pulling the trigger," IMPD Mjr. Harold S. Turner told RTV6 after a busy night.

If you or anyone you know has any information about these shooting incidents, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
