The second shooting happened about 2:30 a.m. near the Stratford Apartments when two people who were camping out were reportedly robbed. Police said one of the victims was beaten by several people before the robbery. When the victim's friend went to chase away the suspects, one of the suspects shot him.
The man who was shot, later identified as Alexander Thill of Tinley Park, Illinois, was taken to Eskenazi Health in critical condition along with his friend who was listed in fair condition.
UPDATE Wednesday morning: Thill is reportedly in good condition.
Indiana State Police and Speedway Police were searching for suspects near the Stratford Apartments. Marion County Director of Public Safety Troy Riggs said police worked swiftly following the incident.
"It's a shame that happened, but it's good we had the officers here to respond quickly," Riggs said.
Karen Searle, who lives across from the Coke Lot, said she was surprised at the violence at the Speedway this year.
"I was a little shocked because normally at this race the violence is way down," Searle said. "Everyone is so happy and nice. We never really encountered anyone being aggressive or pushy so in two years that's the first I've heard of something being so violent."
