IMPD: No injuries; Suspect taken into custody


IMPD is investigating a shooting at Lafayette Square Mall Friday night.


IMPD responded to multiple calls of shots fired inside the mall just before 7:00.  IMPD Officer Kendale Adams says officers arrived and attempted to locate any victims and a possible shooter.  "Working with witnesses, they were able to determine a possible shooter.  Officers spread out across the mall and took into a custody a juvenile male who we believe is a possible suspect on the north side of the mall.  They also recovered a small caliber handgun." 

Adams says no injuries were reported in the incident.  He says officers also stopped a vehicle with large caliber guns inside.  Those guns were confiscated but police did not say if that vehicle was related to the shooting.  

In a statement, IMPD Chief Rick Hite said, "Shootings of this nature will not be tolerated. IMPD will have increased security and a stepped-up presence at our malls."
