INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One of the victims shot in the Washington Square Mall shooting is now facing a charge.

Police have preliminarily charged Aaron Carr, 26, with carrying a gun without a license. They say that Carr was carrying a gun inside the mall at the time of the shooting that had been reported stolen from Vigo County last year.

A gunman shot Carr and injured two others inside the mall last month. Carr was released from IU Health Methodist Hospital on Oct. 28.

Last Friday, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department released surveillance video of the suspects. One is about 6 foot 6 inches tall, and the other is around 5 foot 10 inches tall. Both have a thin build and were wearing black clothing. One had a handgun.

24 Hour News 8, spoke to a family member of one of the victims who declined to talk to us on camera. A probable cause affidavit could come out later this week against Carr. At this point, police have not said if Carr was the intended target during the Washington Square shooting.

Anyone with information about the shooting or suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at (317) 262-TIPS (8477).
