INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department was investigating a homicide Wednesday afternoon on the city's southwest side.
Police were called to the 5000 block of Wicks Drive around 1:40 p.m. to the report of a person possibly shot.

None of the children were harmed. All were released to Child Protective Services.
Police say no arrests have been made.
