For the second time in three days, first responders were called to the scene of a shooting in Greenwood.
The shooting was reported at around 8:07 p.m. Tuesday in the 1100 block of Westminster Court, in the Westminster Apartments and Townhomes complex.
The only information police could immediately confirm is that one man was shot following an altercation with several other people, said Jim Ison, Greenwood police chief.
Those people fled the scene, and at around 9 p.m., police were beginning the process of locating those involved with the shooting, he said.
The man was transported to Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment. His condition was not immediately available.
Witnesses at the scene said the people involved were juveniles who ran through the fence toward the neighboring Polo Run Apartments, located to the south.
Between this incident and the mass shooting at the Greenwood Park Mall on Sunday, Westminster residents were in shock. Their complex is just one block away from the mall, which is on the other side of U.S. 31.
“It is very scary. I never would have imagined this would happen so close to me,” resident Raquel Reyes said. “This is nuts. The fact that people keep resorting this gun (stuff) is insane.”
