INDIANAPOLIS - A gunfight near a skating complex ended with one person taken from a Taco Bell to the hospital early Monday morning.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) said early Monday, at least two people were involved in a dispute at Skateland Roller Skating Center and ended up exchanging gunfire outside the complex (located near West 38th Street and Interstate 465). Investigators said they found multiple bullet casings on the scene. (See map below.)
Detectives said one of the involved parties drove to the Taco Bell near 16th Street and Tibbs Avenue after the shooting. The people in the car were reportedly trying to avoid a car that was following them and chose the Taco Bell parking lot because it was dark and they believed they could evade the following car.
One person inside that car that fled to Taco Bell was shot in the hip and once they called 911, the victim was taken to Eskenazi Health. The victim is expected to survive.
There are few details available otherwise, including whether police have any suspects in custody.
Police said a couple of skaters were still inside Skateland (formerly known as "USA Skates") when the shooting happened, and were escorted out afterward.
