INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man was shot twice on the northwest side of Indianapolis Wednesday morning, dispatchers with IMPD confirm.

Officers responded to the area of 56th and Georgetown around 7:10 a.m. They say a man had been shot twice — once in the back and once in the neck. He was taken to St. Vincent Hospital in serious but stable condition.

Police believe some type of argument occurred between the victim and another motorist. Investigators think the driver in the other car fired a shot at the victim in his car. They think the two know one another.

The incident, police say, happened after the suspect and victim had pulled into a nearby subdivision. The two quickly left, and that’s when shots were fired.

Police say the victim’s vehicle went over the center line, jumped a curb, went up a hill and crashed into a row of bushes after the shooting.

Westbound 56th was closed while police investigated but has since re-opened. Eastbound traffic was closed around 8:20 a.m.

Police dispatchers say a black Alero was last seen westbound on 56th. They were looking for that car, which had an In God We Trust Plate on it.
