Indy police question person about shooting of 7

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis police say they have a person in custody and are questioning him about the overnight shooting of seven people in an Indianapolis neighborhood known for its night life.

Chief Rick Hite told The Associated Press on Saturday that the male was being interviewed.

The shootings took police in an area that is popular for bar-hopping, and occurred about a half-hour before the bars were to close at 3 a.m. Police say one man is in critical condition at a local hospital. Five other men and a woman also were shot, but do not have life-threatening injuries. All of the victims are in their 20s.

The shooting is the latest in a violent year for Indianapolis, which is on track to rival its record of 162 homicides, set in 1998.
