(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – On Saturday night, the police stated that a shooting outside an Indianapolis mall had resulted in seven children being injured. 

Patrolling police officers in the downtown area of Indianapolis had heard the gunshots after 11:30 p.m. and had promptly arrived at the scene. Police officers stated that when they arrived outside Circle Centre Mall they had seen six people, aged between 12 and 17 who had gunshot wounds. 

The children were taken to nearby hospitals, while a seventh person, who was also a minor, made their way to the hospital without any assistance. Six of the victims are stable while there is one in critical condition. 

Police Department deputy Chief of operations Tanya Terry stated that the shooting was very “concerning.” Terry added that once again this is an instance where young people were resorting to resolving conflict on their own with the use of firearms. She added that this was something that needed to be stopped. 

Terry had also told reporters that there was a pattern of young people exiting the mall after it closes at 7 p.m. and hanging around downtown for hours. She argued that if parents were not aware of where their children were close to midnight before Easter then that needed to be a “priority.” 

She then referenced an old public service announcement that would go out at 10 o’clock in the evening and would ask parents if they knew where their children were. She added that they should be asking for parents to be more involved in the actions of their children especially in the late hours of the evening.
