Man wounded in early morning shooting in stable condition

ANDERSON, Ind. — A man was upgraded from serious to stable condition Thursday afternoon at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis after suffering a gunshot wound in the early morning.

Stephon M. Brockington, 20, of Anderson, somehow found a ride to Community Hospital in Anderson after being shot in the back around 2:30 a.m. near the intersection of Nichol and Arrow avenues, said Anderson Police Department public information officer Joel Sandefur.

Brockington was transported by helicopter to Methodist Hospital because of the serious nature of his injury.

While it appears clear that Brockington was shot by someone else, no one had been taken into custody yet, Sandefur said.

“At this time we have no suspects, we haven’t made any arrests. We’re still trying to identify any people of interest,” Sandefur said.

Sandefur said police have collected some evidence and know what type of gun was used in the shooting, but are withholding that information for now.

A call was made to 911 at 2:30 a.m. reporting shots were fired in the area. Officers found evidence of a shooting but no victim. Soon after, police received a call informing them Brockington was at Community Hospital, Sandefur said.

Brockington was lucid enough to give some information to hospital officials and detectives. He told police he was the victim of the reported shooting, Sandefur said.

Sandefur said a number of witnesses and neighbors have been interviewed, and police know the name of the person who drove Brockington to the hospital, but they are withholding the names for now.

“At this point, the investigation is ongoing,” Sandefur said.

Brockington has been arrested four times. A charge of possession of a handgun was dismissed in 2010. Later that year he pleaded guilty to illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor. He pleaded guilty to a domestic battery charge in 2012, and was arrested again on Jan. 18 on charges of operating a vehicle without a license and unsafe lane movement.

Anyone who has information pertaining to this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 649-8310.
