This happened near The Country Club of Indianapolis.  Perps also shot houses next to his.

There's way more to this story. That's not a hit that's a message. Hope he didn't get himself involved with the wrong people. But Indy is full of a bunch of straight *.

What the heck?! And my wife wonders why every time we venture into Indy these days, I clamour for an MRAP or Abrams

Things in Indy are much worse than the press will ever acknowledge.  The violence, murders, unrest as well as destruction from drug usage is overwhelming good people in town.  I get this directly from someone who has to deal with it daily (a neighbor who is in law enforcement) and the stuff he tells me is shocking.  And most people just don't have any idea.  He says it is no longer safe to drive through some areas and that the police don't patrol certain areas because they fear it could escalate violence.  Really shocking stuff to hear about.  It's sad because there's so much positive stuff also happening.  A lot of renovations of old houses, more available & affordable quality housing etc. I served on a jury of a well known case involving a guy who straight up murdered a pizza delivery guy and stole his car just so he had a ride back to his house.  It was cold blooded and his entire family and circle of cohorts were all convicted violent criminals and this wasn't "organized" crime.. it was just depressing, extreme poverty, low education, low opportunity generational and societal collapse.

I heard that it was possibly mistaken identity and they shot up the wrong house. Yikes, hope they catch them before they come back to the area and do it again.

I can add to the story a tiny piece of info.  A store near my house got swamped with 15 police cars several hours after the shooting apparently because there was an ongoing manhunt as one of the assailants had dropped their cellphone which led to another phone which pinged inside the store near here.  But they were no where to be found when the police got there.  This is on a different side of Indy than the West side where the shooting occurred.  

 

Pretty intense stuff.

That's the story in most large cities.   Indy is in great shape in comparison to Chicago

I'm surprised the police made public that they had the cell phone.  Kudos to them for being on top of it though.  I hope they catch all of them

Well I have lived in both places and I know I can't even enter my old neighborhood in Chicago.  When I lived there it was so-so, then it got revamped and upgraded significantly, but now it isn't safe to even drive through (though a major road goes through it).  Sadly however, Chicago is perhaps the worst place in the country today.  So sure, we're better off, but that's a pretty low bar to compare us against.

I actually had found out what I posted before I even saw the news report about them finding the cell phone.  I agree it is odd they reported it, unless they wanted the shooters to KNOW they had his phone.  Could be a tactic.  

 

When I heard about the store near me I didn't initially know a Colts coach was part of the story until after I saw it here.  Too close for comfort for me that's for sure.

For sure.  I've been robbed.  I had to move because I didn't feel safe anymore. Been wondering what this man will do once he's repaired his home

This is scary! I hope they find the perps and lock them up, they could have killed many people. They will probably get 2 years jail, probation and back on the streets. Out legal system is so broken

This happened to my uncle just minutes south of castleton.  The police felt it was a gang initiation.  They pick a house randomly and shoot at it with a new gang member.  His house was shot 40 times or so.  He was inside with his family but thankfully nobody was hurt.  They never caught them.

My wife is a pharmacist who has been robbed 4 times, 3 at work with a gun to her head twice and once at home also with a gun to her head on a gang initiation night here in Indy. They robbed the local convenience store near our house, happened to see my wife coming in from work, robbed her even though an Indy Policewoman's cruiser was parked right in front of our house. Later that night they tried to rob another woman, much the same as my wife, but instead of handing her purse over, this woman tried to scramble inside her house and they shot at her through the door and hit her daughter instead.  We moved as soon as we could.  

 

Pharmacies are a dangerous job and sadly we are living in a dangerous city. In a few minutes they can get over 100K in drugs. It's a big target.

Yeah there's been a spree on robbing Walgreens every year it seems. The drug addicts getting their fix moreso than stealing and selling it. Sad.

Walgreens and CVS get robbed almost nightly, sometimes multiple stores in one night here in Indy.  It almost never gets reported on the news.  Bad for business and all.  They don't hit the Wal Marts, Targets etc. because they are in the middle of the stores by design and most have bullet proof glass protecting employees.  Not the two big free standing chains.  All the employees are ripe for the picking.  And I could go on and on, but I will stop.

Whatever happened to putting your hands up and hashing out a beef if words couldn't?  It seems as if we have a bunch of video game warriors that have no clue what really being tough is?  It is sad and unfortunately, I worried that Indy's offseason was too quiet for a change.  I guess not, may those responsible be held accountable.

I’m wondering if the bad guys shot up the wrong home?   Perhaps the wrong address?

 

That strikes me as more likely than a football aide having his home shot up because he’s involved with the wrong crowd...

Being that they also kicked in the rear door is concerning.   Doesn't really come of as just some sort of warning.  

 

 

Witnesses told the police they saw eight young men arrive outside the home in multiple vehicles. According to the police report, the men kicked in a rear door and then fired off shots. One of the suspects also dropped his cell phone while the group was trying to evade the scene.

    • Your opinion is wrong though.   Colts had 7th best Run Defense in the league last year.   https://www.footballdb.com/stats/teamstat.html?group=D&cat=T&sort=rushypg
    • The 2021 draft is going to be such a mess with college conferences cancelling seasons. Some are moving seasons to spring then going to expect them to play again in the fall. How many will opt out of the spring session and only play fall. What about guys who red one more year removed from HS to be eligible fir the draft. Will it force guys like Trevor Lawrence to stay in school a extra year. I am not sure how a draft will even be able to ge done in 2021. A lot of players are going to be losing a lot of money if they opt out and enter the draft. 
    • LOL. Did you watch any of the games last season?   Also, Okereke is 6-1, 235 lbs, basically the same size as Patrick Willis and Luke Keuchly, except with longer arms and also runs a 4.58 40. I’d take the increased arm length and athleticism over 0.0001 centimeters in height any day. 
    • I think S depth may trump OL depth right now.  Hooker's battled injuries most of his career and the fact he wasn't extended and given some of Ballard's pressers (basically saying Hooker's play dropped off throughout the year in 2019 and he wasn't playing to his level of expectations) and the fact we drafted Blackmon in Rd 3 lead me to believe the FO/Coaching Staff is getting ready to move on from him.     Willis played well as a rookie, but I still see him as a guy who is just about at his ceiling given his limited athleticism.  Rutledge looks like a playmaker but he went undrafted for a reason and he's a rookie coming from a small school, so it'd be hard to expect him to adjust to the NFL right away, especially given this weird off season.  I like Odum more as a STer than a full-time starting safety should we have an injury to Hooker or Willis. Then Tell, while I don't blame him, opting out, IMO, was a big blow to our entire secondary as he was developing nicely at CB but has the versatility to play S if needed (I don't know any of our current corners have that ability, maybe Rhodes).     OL depth is still concerning, but it sounds like Pinter is really impressing coaches as a rookie and I think Clark is versatile enough to be a solid stop gap at G or T if needed.  Hopefully Patterson is back to full health as a backup C (sounds like Big Q or Pinter would be next in line at C if needed).  I guess, I think we're so strong with our starting OL (with Glowinski being the weak link, but not really that weak of a link) that I feel like a single replacement there would not be as devastating to one of our starting S going down right now.  Regardless, it'd be nice to have a few more guys competing across the OL.
    • It has to be odd signing FAs now, since teams aren't allowed to work them out.  I guess one would hope that these guys have been keeping themselves in shape throughout the offseason, but it'd still be nice to be able to work them out before signing them.   Safety now is, IMO, the team's biggest concern.  I think we're fine w/ Hooker and Willis as starters, though Hooker's had injury issues throughout his time in the NFL (and prior).  I like Odum, but like him more as a STer than a guy we have to rely on being a starter for an extended time if one of our top 2 go down.  Then Blackmon is still on the injured list, and I don't expect him to be full strength to the middle of the season (if not later).  The UDFA, Rutledge, was a playmaker but from a small school and went undrafted for a reason, so I'm not too sure that we should expect anything out of him in terms of being reliable if he had to play a lot of minutes.   Geathers is still a FA and I know Ballard really seemed to like him.  I'm wondering if him not being signed or brought up in discussion is a health issue (i.e., can't pass a physical), a major health concern (given his injury history), demanding too much $, or if the team has simply moved on from him.    Personally, I like the fact we're looking at Tavon Wilson, he's a former 2nd round draft pick who had his best NFL year last season, starting 13 games in Detroit and recording 98 tackles, 2 fumble recovers and 5 passes defended.
