One person was killed and five were wounded in several overnight shootings in Indianapolis, IN, reports indystar.com.

The shootings happened between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. in different parts of the city, according to the report.

The first was reported shortly after 2 a.m., when two people–both in stable condition–were shot by Broad Ripple and Guilford avenues. Minutes later, police officials reported a shooting in the 1000 block of Broad Ripple Avenue; that victim’s condition was not available.

It remains unclear if the two Broad Ripple shootings are connected.

Soon thereafter, IMPD officers were dispatched to the 7600 block of Moller Road as a person was reported shot. Officers did not locate a victim on the scene but were then called to the 4800 block of West 71st Street moments later for a man who arrived at the Pike Township Fire Station with gunshot wounds. That victim was pronounced dead at the scene, police officials say.

Then, just prior to 4 a.m., police responded to a report of a person shot at 30 East Georgia St. Officers arrived and found a critical-condition victim.

The final victim arrived at Eskenazi Hospital shortly before 5 a.m. with gunshot wounds and was in stable condition.
