Indianapolis police (IMPD) confirmed at roughly 3:30 a.m., someone called to report shots fired in the area of 16th Street and Tacoma Avenue (see map below).
It wasn't until later that police said officers discovered someone had been hit.
Police didn't find the victim on the scene. We now know that's because someone else drove the victim to IU-Health Methodist.
