A 15-year-old boy is in the hospital after being shot by a pizza delivery man during an attempted robbery on the city's east side Friday night.
IMPD officers were called to 36th Place and Richelieu Drive, near 38th and Franklin, on multiple reports that person had been shot. The pizza delivery man told dispatchers he was approached by two black males as he arrived to deliver a pizza. He said one of the suspects took the pizza while the other pointed a gun at him. The delivery man fired shot the suspect with his own gun. The other suspect dropped the pizza and fled.
The 15-year-old suspect was taken to Wishard Hospital in critical condition. Police say the pizza delivery man remained at the scene and is cooperating with detectives.
The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
