ANDERSON, Ind. - A 17-year-old boy was hospitalized in serious condition after he was shot early Sunday during a parking lot ambush at an Anderson IHOP.
Police said the shooting happened just before 3 a.m. at the IHOP in the 5300 block of Scatterfield Road where police said seven gunshots were fired. The victim was shot twice.
Two suspects, Michael Wright, 18, and Christopher McGregor, 19, were taken into custody after police said they fled the scene in a Honda Civic headed toward Indianapolis before they were stopped by Fishers Police.
Wright faces a preliminary charge of attempted murder and McGregor was accused of allegedly providing the weapon.
Both suspects are from Indianapolis. Wright's aunt, Sonora Clay, said she's apprehensive about her nephew's future, but she's keeping the faith.
"Of course (my nephew) is scared, but I serve a God who has got this under control. I'm going to let God sort this out. I've asked (God) to wrap his arms around the victim and my nephew," Clay said.
Corey McGregor said the situation is trying for both families.
"It's very upsetting for us, for both families. I just hope and pray that the victim makes a full recovery, and then we'll take it from there," he said.
The suspects were being held on a $70,000 bond and an initial hearing was set for July 3.
