2nd shooting this year at Castleton Square Mall wounds 1

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A person was shot Friday at an Indianapolis shopping mall in the second shooting there this year, police said.

“IMPD officers are on scene of a report of a single person shot at Castleton Square Mall," the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department tweeted in the late afternoon. "Officers used a tourniquet on the victim for first aid. The suspect is no longer on scene.”

The person who was shot was taken to a hospital. No additional information was immediately available about their condition.

The mall will remain closed throughout the evening.

“We will be out here for some time trying to piece together what exactly occurred,” IMPD Officer William Young said.

The mall, on the far northeast side of Indianapolis, is the largest mall in the state of Indiana, according to its website. Mall representatives and the mall’s owner, Indianapolis-based Simon Property Group, did not immediately return calls seeking comment on the shooting.

On Jan. 3, a 16-year-old boy died and a man was hospitalized after a shooting in a parking lot outside an entrance to the mall.
