INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Detectives and officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were spread across the city Monday night responding to at least four shootings in a span of less than two hours.  

Around 8:47 p.m. Monday, officers responded to the 300 block of North Randolph Street for a possible person shot. A person there was shot and was awake and breathing, according to IMPD Officer Genae Cook. 

An hour later, at 9:47 p.m., police responded to the 100 block of North Riley Avenue, where a person received a graze wound in a shooting, according to Cook.

Ten minutes after that, just before 10 p.m., officers were called to an area near 28th Street and North Sherman Drive, where a man was shot multiple times inside a duplex. A witness told police they heard gunshots and squealing tires. That man was taken to an area hospital in critical condition, according to IMPD Capt. Karen Arnett. Around 11 p.m., officers were waiting for detectives and crime scene investigators to arrive at the scene. People had been detained for questions, police said. 

And around 10:23 p.m. police were called to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, where a person had shown up with apparent gunshot wounds, likely received during a shooting near 56th Street and Georgetown Road, police said. No condition was immediately provided for that person. 

Police did not confirm that suspects were in custody in connection to any of the shootings.
