INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis man was in serious condition Friday after being shot during an apparent robbery on the northeast side.
Witnesses told police that individuals were "hanging out" near the residence, located on the 3700 block of Linwood Avenue, prior to the shooting, which detectives determined during a robbery stemming from a pre-arranged meeting from a Craigslist posting.
Police said they believe the victim, 19-year-old Carlos Rodas, attempted to sell a cellphone to the suspect, who forced Rodas victim into his own vehicle at gunpoint.
A struggle ensued, according to witnesses, ultimately ending with the suspect shooting Rodas three times and then fleeing northbound.
Neighbors told police they saw a Dodge Charger or Challenger fleeing the area at a high rate of speed.
Rodas was taken to Methodist Hospital in serious condition.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department encourages members of the community with any information regarding this incident to report it to Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS (8477).
