2 detained after 2 shot outside Big Red Liquors near Monument Circle

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Two people have been detained after two men were injured in a shooting Thursday night in downtown Indianapolis, according to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

Officers were called on reports of a person shot around 9:15 p.m. Thursday at 25 N. Pennsylvania St. That’s one block east of Monument Circle downtown. Police said the shooting happened outside the Big Red Liquors store at that address.

One man was in critical condition, and another man, who received a graze wound, was in serious condition. The man in serious condition had a bullet hit him near his armpit and may have injured his lung.

IMPD said another altercation led to a “spinoff altercation” that appeared to precede the shooting.

A witness saw the shooting from a parking garage across the street. The employee of Express Park told News 8 that five people were arguing outside the liquor store when two gunshots went off. As police arrived, the witness told News 8, one man from the group tried walking off and police yelled at him to stop, but the witness did not know if police caught up to the man.

IMPD later said that man was one of the two people detained. Witnesses helped police arriving on the scene to find suspects who were fleeing after the shooting.

Police could not confirm that the people detained are suspects, or whether suspects remain at large.

On July 16, Mayor Joe Hogsett rolled out a crime-reduction plan calling for more police on the street and more intervention. His long-awaited announcement came while Indianapolis violent crime is down but criminal homicides are up compared to 2019.

The Rev. Charles Harrison, leader of the crime-fighting Indianapolis Ten Point Coalition, tweeted Thursday night, “Downtown has never seen this much violence in my 28 yrs of living in Indy.”

All Indiana-made brands discounted at Big Red Liquors

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana’s largest packaged liquor retailer is offering a 25% discount on all Hoosier brands.

Big Red Liquors announced on Monday that all Indiana-made brands will be discounted until the ongoing COVID-19 crisis subsides enough for the internal dining ban to be lifted for restaurants and bars.

“Indiana breweries, wineries, and distilleries make up some of our states most dynamic, historic, and community-centric organizations,” Don Rix, the president of Big Red Liquors, said. “They are often the color and lifeblood of many small towns and cities across Indiana. The COVID-19 crisis is having an outsized impact on these organizations who often rely on their own internal restaurants, taprooms, or marketing as tourist destinations to stay in business.”

Wherever Hoosiers choose to shop, Rix said he hopes its Indiana businesses.

“Whether you shop our stores or in any of the other great retail establishments across Central and Southern Indiana, we ask that you support Indiana-Made brands,” Rix said. “We should all be committed to doing our part to support Hoosier owned businesses through the duration of this crisis.”

Big Red Liquors is offering curbside pickup, call ahead orders, and limited delivery at all locations.

You can browse thousands of liquor, beer and wine options on bigredliquors.com or by downloading the Big Red Liquors app, where you can also make orders.
