A mass shooting early Sunday morning resulted in the death of six people including a pregnant woman and her unborn child. The incident happened on the near northeast side. Police responded to reports of a shooting when they found the bodies.
At a press conference, officials couldn’t release many details but they did say this appears to be isolated and targeted.
Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett called the incident a mass murder.
"This morning the City of Indianapolis was targeted with an act of depravity that has become all too common across the country," Hogsett said.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Chief Randal Taylor said he was heartbroken.
"There are no right words to say at this time, a time when our community must come to terms with the largest mass casualty shooting in more than a decade," Taylor said.
Another juvenile male was also shot and is expected to survive. This year continues to see an increased number of homicides in Indianapolis.
