Masked Gunman Shoots 8 At Party; 2 Killed
Indianapolis, Indiana - The morning after a masked gunman killed two people and wounded six more at a party, police in Indianapolis, Indiana, were still on the scene investigating, authorities said Tuesday.
The incident happened in the "near northwest" part of the city, in a neighborhood rife with gun violence, drugs and prostitution, Indianapolis police Sgt. Michael Jefferson said.
"It makes you sick. And it makes you wonder, 'Why are people so bent on killing each other, shooting each other? For what?'" an unidentified neighbor told CNN affiliate WISH. "I don't know what's going on, what's happening in our neighborhood. Hopefully, we can get some help over here. And the young people have taken over. They're doing whatever they want to do," she added.
Witnesses said around midnight, at least one person got out of a car, put on a mask and fired what appeared to be an assault rifle at a crowd gathered at a party, Indianapolis police Lt. Jeff Duhamell said.
