Police Look For Suspect In Gas Station Shooting

Clerk shot in the head on SW side is in critical condition

Indianapolis police are looking for a suspect after a gas station employee was shot in the head during a robbery.

Police say a man wearing a bandana over his face robbed the Joe's Junction Phillips 66 station in the 5200 block of West Troy Avenue on Indy's southwest side around 10:15 Thursday night. IMPD Sgt. Kendale Adams says the man fired three shots without being provoked, one of which hit a 45-year-old clerk in the head. The shooter forced the other clerk to give him money, and a police report says he skipped away from the store before running away on Troy.

The man who was shot is in critical condition at Eskenazi Hospital. The other clerk and a customer who was inside the store were not hurt.

Adams says the suspect is a black man with a light complexion in his late teens to early 20's with earrings in both ears. He's between 5-10 and six feet tall, 180 to 200 pounds and was last seen wearing a gray hoodie, black pants, black and white sneakers and a black and red Miami Heat ball cap.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers of Indiana at (317) 262-TIPS (8477), or they can text “INDYCS” plus tip information to 274637 (CRIMES).
