Eight Shot, Five Dead In Violent 24-Hour Period
At least eight people have been shot, leaving five dead, in Indianapolis during the most violent 24-hour period this year. The first shooting claimed one victim on the City's westside yesterday afternoon. That was followed up by two double shootings last night. Two people were found shot in a crashed car on the City's northeast side, one of whom was dead. A few hours later, two women were shot in a home on the City's east side. Another shooting shortly before midnight claimed the life of a sixth victim on the City's southside. Early this morning, two people were found dead in an apartment complex in Lawrence in an apparent murder-suicide. That brings the year's homicide rate to date close to 70.
