MARION,Ind. (WISH) - One person is dead and another hospitalized after a shooting late Thursday night in Marion.
Police are looking for a shooter that remained on the loose early Friday morning.
The shooting happened around 10:20 p.m. Thursday near 30th & Nebraska streets on the south side of Marion.
Investigators said two people were shot inside a car in an alley. One victim got out and ran up the street to a local diner, where police were called.
Both victims were taken to Marion General Hospital, where one victim was pronounced dead. The second victim continues to be treated for gunshot injuries.
Victim information has not been released, pending family notification.
"We're following up on leads that we have, witnesses that we're talking to, the neighborhood canvasses that we've done, trying to gather information, obviously, about the shooting," said Marion Deputy Police Chief Cliff Sessoms.
Sessoms said they do have a person of interest they are seeking at this time.
It's been nearly a month since a tornado damaged Southwestern Middle School and Mintonye Elementary School, giving faculty the task of helping students transition to their new surroundings.
There were several two hour delays for area schools Thursday morning. As of Thursday evening, there are none for Friday morning.
Donations are being accepted to help around 300 seniors receive a holiday gift.
