Just after 1 a.m. Tuesday, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers found a man with a gunshot wound at a Speedway gas station on Emerson Avenue just north of I-70 on the city’s east side.

The man told police he had been shot about a block away at 30th Street and Emerson Avenue, officers at the scene told News 8.
