Indy Black Firefighters Association building hit by bullet

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police in Indianapolis are investigating who fired a bullet that went into the Indianapolis Black Firefighters Association building on the city’s near north side.

Officers say that bullet went through the front door and into an inside door. The building is located on East 46th Street.

The association’s president told 24-Hour News 8 they discovered the damage when they arrived Thursday morning.

Corey Arnold calls the incident “disheartening” but says they won’t be discouraged. However, they do plan to be more cautious going forward.

“That would have definitely have been a kill shot for anybody that was here and they would have been here on a voluntary basis doing something for the community and end up dying from just a random act of violence,” Arnold said.

Arnold says a trash can outside the building was damaged, along with a flower bed. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
