Residents want answers after gunmen shoot women and children

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police are looking for answers after an apartment shooting injured two women and three children on Sunday night.

Three gunmen stormed the apartment on the 5000 block of Wildflower Court just after 9:30 p.m.

Shots were fired with two women and three children suffering gunshot wounds.

According to police, the adult victims knew their attackers. Neighbors at the quiet subdivision were reluctant to talk.
