    WTHR I just saw. They caught the whole thing on camera. Police tazed and had their guns drawn down on the lady.

    Perhaps the video will be up on their site soon.

    Indianapolis - Shots fired downtown and screams as by-standers run for cover.

    The people fled after the sound of gunshots rang out just before 1:00 a-m in the area of Maryland and Illinois. A large crowd was still downtown because of the Black Expo events.

    Police say a woman was attempting to get rid of a handgun, and when officers noticed, she took off running.

    "As the officers approached, the person with the firearm fled from officers and while she was running from officers, started firing shots in the air," said Sgt Paul Thompson of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. "According to the police who tried to apprehend her, they thought she was trying to spread the crowd out to facilitate her escape but she ran right in the command center were she was tazed and taken into custody."

    In all the commotion, the fleeing crowd ran down two by-standers and one officer was slightly injured. They were treated at the scene


    You can see the VIDEO by clicking EYEWITNESS NEWS WEBCAST. I also noticed in the video somoene (an LEO?) dropped a Glock, that was picked up by a(nother) officer.

    The video info says it's located at

    mms://a884.m.akastream.net/7/884/7621/v001/

    SO, you might be able to OPEN URL and paste that in Windows Media Player for a direct link.

    Okay, that did not work for ME, might work for you. But clicking the link DOES work.

    Love the sound of gunfire down there.

    I love how Lyndsey states another successful IBE. I guess it was successful since no one was shot and there was only one shooting.

    Why would they even consider using a Taser instead of their sidearms on someone who is not just holding a pistol, but actually firing it?

    Is it one of those BEPRICP deals? (black expo public relations-induced change of policy)

    Anyone notice that Chief Spears began to run off and came back to pick up a dropped G22 w/tac light that had fallen to the ground. Now I'm pretty sure the Chief does wear a tac light on his 22 but someone standing with him does and they dropped their duty gun right in the middle of this mess...nice.

    In all honesty, there is NO WAY you can take a shot in that melee w/o hitting innocents. Tough call.

    No, it's some nutty neo-Nazi site.

    Holy cow, I almost didn't believe you guys when you told me about the prior shootings. Glad I was in Michigan.

    Anymore info on this matter?

    I am just surprised that there was only one "reported" shooting this year. Stay safe out there guys.

    So, only one reported shooting is a successful event?

    How many shootings at the last Indy 1500 Gun Show? Oh, yeah, zero. But, hey, we get a free shooting and can still be "sucessful"!!!

    I had lunch with one of the GIMPS on Saturday a few hours before he had to report for duty at MurderFest '07. I asked him for a prediction on the number of shootings this year, noting the reported total of three from last year. He made sure I knew that the number of three from last year was just the reported number. :shocked:

    If NOT for the WTHR cameras rolling, would we have KNOWN about this shooting?

    And, how many other shootings may have gone unreported?

    Hitler-esque moustache on avatar, check.
    Anti-hispanic implication in location field, check.

    Stormfront regular sighted! Watch out for those minorities, buddy. ;)

    Can't have one. That would be racist.
