INDIANAPOLIS -- An infant is among five people shot inside an apartment in Indianapolis around 9:30 p.m. Sunday.

Detectives with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) were called to the 5000 block of Wildflower Court late Sunday.

Police say two women and three children, ages six, four and six months, are hospitalized in serious condition. The infant was shot several times in the leg and hand.

All of the victims are from one family.

Detectives say three men opened fire inside the home. They say the shooting does not appear to be a random crime. Police say the suspects know the victims. There was no forced entry.

One witness, a male, was inside the apartment and was not injured in the shooting. He is reportedly working with detectives.

Police aren't saying what led up to shooting but they are looking for either a white or grey sedan seen speeding away right after the shooting.

“We do know the suspects were inside the residence and there is no forced entry that we believe occurred to get into the residence,” said IMPD Lt. Richard Riddle. “So they were obviously inside the residence prior to the shooting. We do not have any runs to this location previously. And that’s where we stand at this point.”
