INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A woman injured in a Wednesday evening shooting on the northeast side has died, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

Police also said they remain hopeful that the 11-year-old girl hurt in the shooting will survive her injuries.

On Wednesday, Aug. 11, just before 9 p.m., police were called to a domestic disturbance call in the 7500 block of Bayview Club Drive. That’s in the Bayview Club Apartment Homes just southwest of the I-69 and I-465 interchange.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says an officer was shot in the leg while checking the perimeter of the apartment. He was stable at an area hospital.

At the time, the girl and the woman were shot and were in critical condition. The girl was taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital; the woman was taken to Ascension St. Vincent Hospital.

The suspect in the shooting, 32-year-old Donald Williams, was taken to the hospital in critical condition from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He later died at the hospital.

This is the fourth child shot in Indianapolis in less than two weeks. The three other children home during this shooting are physically alright, but police said even one child hurt, is too many.
