INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A woman died and a man is in critical condition after being shot at a CVS location on the city’s east side, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.

Police were called about 3 p.m. to a report of a person shot at the retail store, 8935 E. 21st St. That’s at the intersection of East 21st Street and North Post Road.

Officers found the two people shot a few blocks away at East 16th Street and North Post Road, although the shooting happened at the CVS.

IMPD was not sure what led to the shootings. Police could not confirm the man and woman were customers at the store. Officers were continuing to interview people.

The man and the woman were initially assessed by police as awake and breathing, but police said later the woman died and the man was in critical condition.

The Rogers family lives next door to the CVS and heard the shooting happen. Stephenee Rogers, 17, was playing on her tablet when she heard several loud “pops.”

“When I came out with my mom I saw tape all over CVS, cars going in and out, cops running back and forth,” said Rogers.

She and her family were shaken by the incident and said they have been afraid for some time and their fear is growing.

“You don’t know if you ever walk outside and see somebody with a gun and the next thing you know somebody could automatically come up and shoot you,” said Stephenee’s mom Kelley Rogers.

As of Wednesday night, police had not released additional information in the fatal shooting.
