INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis police have detained two persons of interest in a shooting at a park on the city’s near northwest side that injured one person.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department was called around 8:10 p.m. Tuesday to 3700 Clifton Street, the address for Bertha Ross Park, on report of a person shot.
