TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Officers responded to a reported shooting at 13th Street and 4th Avenue in Terre Haute Friday around 10:30 a.m.

THPD Chief Plasse told our crew that the shooting happened between two vehicles; one green car and a blue van. One female from the green car was injured in the shooting

She was transported for her injuries.

The blue van left the scene with the front passenger window shot out. It is a 2008 Blue Dodge Caravan with a license plate number SME711. Officials are currently trying to locate this van and ask for anyone who may think they have located it, to call 911 and to NOT approach it.

“I mean it’s troubling that we’ve got three people shot in the span of a few hours,” Chief Plasse stated. “And we’re working to see what the cause of that is and get some answers out there to the public so that they’re not alarmed.”

Chief Plasse said these shootings aren’t believed to be random and there is history involved with the people that they’re investigating.

Plasse also says they aren’t ruling out that these shootings might be connected.
