INDIANAPOLIS - A critically injured man was taken to the hospital early Friday morning after nearby residents found him with gunshot wounds in an abandoned lot.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) said at roughly 2:30 a.m., officers headed to the 1800 block of Holloway Avenue, which is just northeast of the North Split (see map below).
911 callers had said they heard a few shots in the area, and when they went outside, they found a man who had been shot through his torso. He also had wounds on his arm.
IMPD said the neighbors called 911 and applied direct pressure on the man's wounds until medics could arrive.
He was taken to IU-Methodist Hospital in critical condition. IMPD said he is in his mid-40s.
There is no word yet on whether police have any suspects in mind.
