INDIANAPOLIS - A bystander was injured during a drive-by shooting on the far-east side Friday and two suspects were still at large.
The shooting happened around 10:45 a.m. at the Lakeview Terrace Apartments near the intersection of 21st Street and Mitthoeffer Road.
Two witnesses told police they were at a convenience store in the area when they saw someone they believed wanted to shoot them. The men told police they started running toward Lakeview Terrace Apartments, where a man and a woman in a blue Cavalier pulled up and began firing a gun.
The two witnesses were not hit, but a third person standing on the porch of an apartment was struck in the foot by a bullet.
The victim was taken to Methodist Hospital with what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries. Police said he just happened to be visiting his children at the apartment complex at the time of the shooting.
One of the witnesses told police he had been a victim of a shooting in the area one month ago.
Police are looking for a man and woman driving a blue Cavalier. Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477.
