Here’s the station’s report. “The man who was arrested worked beside us until recently,” said the anchor.
Adds WRTV Indianapolis:
Employees of the station believed they heard gunshots from outside of the building. A quick, cursory search at that time did not reveal the damage,” said ISP Sgt. Joe Watts. “As daylight arrived and employees were beginning and ending their respective shifts, the gunshot damage was discovered.”
WTWO General Manager Tim Sturgess said the station does not comment on personnel matters.
