INDIANAPOLIS -- One of the most violent areas in the city got even deadlier Thursday morning when a 1-year-old girl was killed.
After an emotional morning, an Indianapolis police spokesperson got emotional when discussing the shooting that took the life of the baby.
“A 1-year-old baby girl lost her life this morning, senselessly," Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Sgt. Chris Wilburn said. "And if that doesn’t move you to action, then I don’t know what can."
The girl was inside a house in the 3500 block of Wittfield Street at 2 a.m. when shots were fired from the street.
The area where the shooting happened is one of the deadliest in the city. This is the sixth deadly shooting within a few blocks of the area.
