Elderly woman hit by bullet scared to go home

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Two brothers are under arrest in a shooting that sent an 87 year old great grandmother to the hospital.

19-year-old Shaun White was arrested Friday, his 17-year-old brother was arrested Thursday evening shortly after the shooting.

The incident happened on North Carrollton Avenue.

Sally Lisenby was sitting on her porch when gunfire erupted.

She’s still recovering in the hospital. Officials have not said when she will be released.

While cleaning blood off the porch steps, her family said she doesn’t want to go home. She’s lived in the neighborhood for 50 years, but relatives say she is now too concerned for her safety.

Newcomers to the neighborhood say it’s changing for the better, but not fast enough.

“Things are really looking nice but these kinds of things still come and they plague us,” said Gil Amram who lives about three blocks north from where the shooting occurred.

“This block is fantastic, you go a block down it’s a little different,” said Chris Hunt

Police say this is still an active investigation and are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS.
