Crime Watch 8

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A suspected gunman was at large after a man was shot Tuesday night at a mobile home court on the city’s west side. 

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department was called shortly before 6:30 p.m. to the scene of a person shot at the Bullfrog Trailer Court in the 1300 block of South Lynhurst Drive. 

Authorities said the shooting victim, a 28-year-old man, was having a dispute with his ex-girlfriend inside a mobile home when another man came in and shot the victim. 

The victim was shot in the thigh and taken to Eskenazi Hospital, police said. 

Police said they know who the name of the suspected gunman but declined to release it. 

Police initially thought the suspected gunman had barricaded himself inside another mobile home at the trailer court and called a special weapons and tactics team to surround the residence. However, they found no one inside.
