Senator J.D. Ford (D – Indianapolis) released the following statement regarding a random shooting at a VASA Fitness on the west side of Indianapolis Tuesday evening:

“On Tuesday night, an armed individual walked into a gym in my district and discharged a firearm multiple times. Two of our neighbors — one a juvenile — were injured. Fortunately no one was killed, but I am angry and upset that this happened in the first place.

“Gun violence is made possible by our gun policies. I am saddened to see the repercussions of bad policy choices that are making Hoosiers everywhere less safe.

“It hurts for this preventable violence to happen in our neighborhood. I am wishing a speedy recovery to those injured.”
