Two shot on east side of Indianapolis

Posted: Updated:

Indianapolis police say an employee at a clothing store and another person were shot when they confronted shoplifters.

Sgt. Kendale Adams says two people were taken into custody when they were found with stolen items from the store following Sunday's shooting.

One of the victims shot Sunday afternoon is in critical condition. Adams says the other is in good condition. It isn't clear whether one of the victims is a store employee or a customer.

It isn't clear whether any more people were involved.

The rapid pace of violence has caused officials to grasp for control. A plan announced earlier this month would rely largely on social services and community interest.

Last year, Indianapolis had 125 homicides, the most in seven years.
