AVON — A woman and a 4-year-old girl were found shot Wednesday afternoon inside a home in Avon and a 25-year-old man was arrested for criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.

Officers were called to the 7300 block of Glensford Avenue according to Avon Deputy Police Chief Brian Nugent.

This is near the intersection of U.S. 36 and State Road 267.

Both were transported to an Indianapolis hospital, Nugent said. Their conditions are not known at this time.

"Officers have secured the scene and our agency is not searching for any additional parties. We do not have an active threat or suspect in the area at this time," the Avon Police Department tweeted at 2 p.m.

Police say the man involved was still on scene when they arrived, cooperated with detectives and was taken in for questioning.

He is now charged with criminal recklessness. WRTV does not identify suspects until they have been formally charged.

The shooting remains under investigation.
