IMPD arrests suspect after Sunday night shooting

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One person is critical, and another is in stable condition after a Sunday night shooting at an apartment complex on Indy’s far east side, police say.

At 6:47 p.m. Sunday, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police officers were dispatched to the 600 block of Belhaven Drive. That is at The Life at Belhaven Place apartments just west of Washington Park East Cemetery.

Officers arrived and found two people with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds. One was transported to a hospital in critical condition, and the second remained on the scene in stable condition.

IMPD detectives later arrested the second person shot, identified Monday as 38-year-old Christopher Middlebrook, for attempted murder.

Investigators believe the shooting happened after an argument between Middlebrook and the critically injured man.
