One person was killed early on Sunday morning in a “mass shooting” at a major street party in Indiana, according to authorities. A hospital said that 19 patients were receiving medical attention there for injuries.
Shooting in Indiana Party
CNN reported that just after one in the morning, The Star Press reported that Muncie police responded to numerous reports of gunfire on the city’s east side. Police stated in a news release that there was no current threat to the neighborhood and that “multiple” people, some of whom were badly injured, had been hurt.
There was no information on who was being sought or apprehended. Based to a statement from Muncie police released on Facebook, “multiple agencies were contacted to assist due to the number of victims and nature of the incident.”
According to a post on the department’s Facebook page, many police officers from the nearby town of Eaton were among those that helped. Police Chief Jay Turner of Eaton described the incident as a “mass shooting.”
Victims From Indiana Party Shooting
In a report from CBS NEWS, police did not disclose the number of injured, but Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie officials told The Associated Press that 19 victims were treated in their emergency room for shooting-related injuries, and 13 remained there as of Sunday morning in stabilized condition.
According to CBS Indianapolis affiliate WTTV, a witness at the hospital recounted commotion in the emergency room as more than 100 individuals — many of them victims transported by private automobiles — descended on the institution.
Reported to The Star Press, the deceased man was identified as 30-year-old Joseph E. Bonner III by Delaware County Coroner Gavin Greene.
A stranger approaches the witness who said his nephew was the disc jockey at the block party and decides to take it personal on someone he knows in the crowd. Additionally, you cannot combat an AR. In the crowd, he became rowdy. Throughout the entire group.
Let’s take a dose of reality, Delaware County Prosecutor Eric Hoffman reportedly stated in a statement to the station. This is not Times Square or the Las Vegas Strip. A residential area can be found here. We seriously doubt the prudence of someone hosting a sizable outdoor party with several hundred people, including minors, that lasts until early in the morning when there are way too many guns on the street.
