Fight, gunfire in Whiteland Thursday night

A teenager bought something online and went to pick it up Thursday night in Whiteland, but what followed was a fight and a shooting, police say.


The Whiteland Police Department says they received a report that shots had been fired in the 700 block of Hummingbird Lane, which is near U.S. 31 and not far from Franklin Community High School.

They believe that in the course of the business exchange there was a fight and the suspects took off in a car. Witnesses say the car then hit several objects and became disabled.


Police say the suspects got out of the car and ran away shortly after it became disabled. Someone else tried to stop the suspects, but officers say one of the suspects fired a gun at that person.


There are no reports of the suspects being found. Police are calling the investigation “ongoing.”
