Indianapolis Wedding Reception Ends With Three People Shot

Police released that a 18-month-old-girl was shot and critically injured during a wedding reception at a community park. Two women also were wounded by gunfire.

A Lawrence Police Department dispatcher who declined to give her
name says the girl underwent surgery Sunday morning and is in
critical condition at Methodist Hospital. Lawrence is a community
within Indianapolis.

Police have not identified the child, who was struck in the head
by a bullet Saturday night when a dispute at the wedding reception
at Lawrence Community Park led to gunfire.

The two women were shot in their legs.

Lawrence Police Chief Paul Whitehead tells The Indianapolis Star
three people have been arrested.

    Yes "hoo", you are living proof that all people are capable. Some are just more capable than others. Race does play a significant role in crime. Even if you do not like it and it hurts your little, tolerant feelings, it just is. Your name calling doesn't bother me, I am a realist. I choose not to buy into your delusions of grandeur that all people are the same and see things the same way, react to things the same way, have the same ambitions, morals, values, etc. They don't and it is cultural, like it or not. Statistics don't lie, people who want to feel good about their goodness and tolerance do. If I hear of a crime in eastern NC, I can tell you the characteristics of the perp to within 90% plus accuracy over 95% of the time. Who cares? Society should, if we accepted reality and dealt with the real issues we could stop lots of crime and save thousands of lives each year.

    who cares about your stats? all people are capable of 'stupid', what on earth have stats got to do with it! unless you happen to be a racist and need something to justify your delusions of grandeur as part of the superior race...

    Stats don't support your theory there "right tad". Sorry, incidents like this (shootings in crowded environments) are recorded in crime stats and there just are not very many that fit this criteria with the type of participants that you mention. Not even in the supposed redneck havens like Kentucky and West Virginia.

    oh ive been to my share of weddings, you dont have to be a certain nationality to do stuff like this, you just have to be a certain amount of drunk and stupid combined. good ol white folks get drunk and stupid like anyone else at public sacred gatherings, so dont think too highly of yourself just cause youre not brown!

    Actually Weatherman, when I went surfing to determine the accuracy of my statistical analysis my first thought was exactly what you are assuming it was. I was however not surprised to find that they were hispanic. It was statistically speaking, the second most likely scenario. The combined probability of it being Welsh, Italian, Irish, Jewish, French Canadian, Anglo-American, etc was so miniscule that statistics would barely recognize the possibility. All that being said, you were right on the money.

    Well, Tad your right but probably not what you think. They're all from south of the border.

    Something tells me this wasn't a Welsh wedding. Or even an Italian wedding. Or an Irish wedding.

    Absolutley rediculous! i have a 2 yr old child and the thouhgt of my child in a situation of this magnatude is astonishing. I hope and pray to the Good Lord that this baby can make and lead the life she was leading before this tragedy occured. The shooters should be ashamed of themselves! The Lord has his own way of dealing with situations like this, God Bless, concerned from nc
