Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department received the call around 12:55 p.m. Friday, directing them to 2259 Ralston Avenue for a reported shooting.

Upon arrival, officers discovered a victim, later identified as a male student from KIPP Indy Legacy High School, suffering from a gunshot wound in the parking lot.

Marion County Crime Lab personnel arrived at the scene and collected a jacket, several bullet casings, and additional evidence, Foley reported. IMPD reiterated around 4 p.m. that it is believed to have been a targeted incident.

During the 4 p.m. news conference, Lt. Foley confirmed that an earlier reported “disturbance” had occurred at KIPP Indy Legacy HS.

However, no additional details were provided, and detectives are currently investigating any potential connection to the shooting.

The Kipp Indy Legacy High School will be reaching out to families through Titan regarding dismissal for further updates,” IMPD announced around 2:30 p.m. on social media. “Families of students at the Edna Martin Christian Center should have already received communication from the center. All after-school activities have been canceled.”
