Police investigate downtown shooting near Circle Centre Mall

No injuries reported

INDIANAPOLIS - Police are investigating shots that were fired in downtown Indianapolis near Circle Centre Mall Saturday evening.

Nobody was injured when shots rang out near the corner of Maryland Street and Capitol Avenue just before 8 p.m.

Police patrolling the area said they saw a suspect fire a gun and were able to get to him immediately.

The faith-based Ten Point Coalition walks the streets with police in an effort to curb violence among the youth that hang out around the mall.

Several members were out during the time of the incident and described what they saw.

“Two large groups of youth came storming out of the mall, and we overheard them talking about going to get something to eat. Then the next thing we know, one group followed the other group, got about a block and a half down the street and gunshots went off,” said the Rev. Horatio Luster.

Police said multiple fights broke out near the mall Saturday night, but they are not saying if they think the fights are connected to the shooting.
