Two women and three children have been wounded in a weekend shooting inside an Indianapolis townhome, police said Monday. (April 6)


INDIANAPOLIS — Two women and three children aged 5 years and under have been wounded in a shooting at a town home in Indianapolis, police said Monday.

Authorities said no one has been arrested and that police are looking for three suspects in the Sunday night attack.

Police don't know the reason for the shooting on the city's northwest side about 9:25 p.m., but believe the victims knew their attackers, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Officer Christopher Wilburn said.

He identified the adult victims as 23-year-old Raychel Fitzpatrick and 49-year-old Shelly Jones. Wilburn said Fitzpatrick was shot in the stomach and leg and was in stable condition Monday afternoon. Jones was shot multiple times in the pelvic area and was in critical condition. When police arrived, 24-year-old Tyler Corbin was holding Fitzpatrick's stomach, he said.

A 2-year-old boy was shot in the hand and lower body and was in stable condition. A 4-year-old boy was in in serious condition and a 5-year-old boy was in stable condition.

Wilburn said police don't know the relationships between the victims, and investigators haven't explained the connection between Corbin and the victims.

A police statement early Monday said authorities were seeking three suspects who fled the complex in a vehicle after the attack.
