INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police are investigating a serious crash on Indy’s near northwest side that sent at least four people to the hospital.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 1800 block of North Harding Street. That’s a residential area about three-tenths of a mile east of Riverside Park.
