INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Metropolitan Police are investigating a person shot in the bedroom of their home on the city’s east side early Wednesday.

Around 1 a.m., police and medics were called to the 2600 block of Hillside Avenue on a report of a person shot.

The victim is a 19-year-old male who told police he was lying in bed, when several shots came through the wall of his bedroom.

One bullet hit him in the knee and another grazed his hand.

He was taken to Riley Hospital in good condition.

Investigators say they got a report of a vehicle that drove down the alley behind the house and fired several shots.

Police continue to look into why that particular house was targeted in the shooting.
