When IMPD officers arrived to the pub, they found two men shot. According to police a second victim was reported to be in stable condition. Detectives and crime lab were on the scene collecting evidence and talking to witnesses.
IMPD released on Sunday night that a suspect has been identified, however, detectives are still working to build the case and speaking with witnesses from the scene. According to witnesses there were numerous people inside the bar at the time of the shooting. No one else was injured in the incident.
“They had yelled out, 'This guy has got a gun. Call the cops, this guy has got a gun.' When they did that, my brother-in-law jumped up and tried to charge the guy to try and keep him from doing anything,” according to Singer-Mann.
The investigation is ongoing.
