Shots fired downtown on Meridian


INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating after shots were fired in a downtown parking lot early Monday.

Police were called to block 200 S. Meridian Street just after 1:40 a.m. to report a fight inside a bar. Officers say the fighting moved outside and one person fired shots in a parking lot.

Several cars had shattered windows, but investigators say they cannot say for sure if they were shattered by the gunfire.

No one was injured in the incident.

“It was unusual for us to have problems. We had no problems on New Years Eve, New Years Day… we had no problems this weekend until tonight, ”said Kerry Buckner, Public Information Officer at the IMPD.

“You can never predict when it’s going to happen. ”

Buckner says several bars were closed early as a precaution.

Police said a potential suspect was seen leaving the area in a blue Chevrolet. Investigators will look at cameras downtown for more information.
