Three Shot And Killed After Leaving The Vault

Mayor Peterson (D) is calling for "extraordinary measures" after five more people were gunned down and killed last night, including at least three who were killed after leaving The Vault on Market Street downtown. The Star's Rob Schneider reports:

“Money can’t be an object at this point,” the mayor said. “I have a controller coming in and we are going to talk about funding for some extraordinary measures.”

Police were investigating whether two of the shootings in which three people were killed and two were injured in the Downtown area are connected.

What is known is all of those victims were at the Vault, a downtown bar located at 120 E. Market Street.

The Vault is the same establishment where porn star Ron Jeremy appeared at a "Boogie Nights" fundraising event for the Indiana Youth Group, a nonprofit support group for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth. You can bet that drugs were somehow tied to these latest killings.
