July 7, 2011

A 17-year-old Indianapolis boy was shot late Tuesday night in an east-side neighborhood near 17th Street and Colorado Avenue, then rode his bicycle more than a mile to the hospital when he couldn’t find a ride. The teen said he riding his bike just before midnight when he heard a car stop, doors shut and about six rounds of gunfire. The boy said a “friend” refused to give him a car ride, so he was forced to ride his bike. Police said the teen was in good shape with bullet wounds in the back. Police have no suspects.
