6 People Shot at Waffle House, 1 Dead

Early Monday morning, a violent incident unfolded at an Indianapolis Waffle House, leaving one person dead and five others injured, according to local law enforcement. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to the scene shortly after midnight following a report of a shooting.

Upon arrival, police found five individuals suffering from gunshot wounds. These victims were immediately transported to nearby hospitals for treatment. Tragically, one of these individuals did not survive their injuries. A sixth person was also treated at Methodist Hospital, though it is currently unclear whether they arrived independently or were assisted by another individual.

Initial investigations by the police suggest that the shooting was sparked by a conflict between two groups. This information was gathered from interviews with victims and witnesses at the scene. However, the authorities have not yet clarified whether any of the shooters were among the injured.

As part of their investigation, police recovered a firearm from a vehicle at Methodist Hospital and another at the Waffle House. Of the surviving victims, three men and one woman are reported to be in stable condition, while another man is critically ill at Methodist Hospital.

Waffle House has publicly stated their full cooperation with law enforcement agencies as the investigation continues.
