3 Kids, 2 Women Shot in Indianapolis Apartment: Police

Three young children and two women were shot Sunday night in an apartment in Indianapolis, in what police said didn't appear to be a random act of violence. The victims were being treated at hospitals in serious condition. Police say they were seeking three male suspects who drove a white or silver vehicle after the two women and three children, aged 6, 4 and "an infant," were shot in an apartment unit on the city's northwest. The suspects are believed to be known to the victims and there was no sign of forced entry into the residence, police said. A friend of the family, Willie Taylor, told NBC affiliate WTHR that the 6-year-old suffered wounds to the arm and leg and the 4-year-old had wounds to the neck and back of the leg. The infant, who he said was a year old, had arm and knee wounds. "I was devastated and hurt beyond words," Taylor told the station. "This is something I wouldn't wish on nobody's family, on nobody's kids."
