2 Shot In Apparent Apartment Break-In

Police Think Resident, Intruder Traded Shots

Two people were shot in a home break-in early Monday morning at an apartment complex on Indianapolis' east side.

Indianapolis Metro police were called to 42nd Street and Post Road just after 1 a.m.

Police said they found two men had been shot. One was believed to be a resident of the apartment complex and the other was possibly an intruder, officers said.

The resident was struck in the head and the other man was hit in the chest. Their injuries were believed to be serious but not life-threatening.

"There was possibly a break-in through the rear of the house," said IMPD Detective Kevin Duley. "Two occupants were in the apartment at the time of the break-in."

Police said they think the two men traded shots. The other resident who was not hurt was questioned as police hoped to determine if any other people were involved.
