Lawrence, Indiana – Following a boys’ basketball game between rival high schools in the Lawrence Township Schools area, shots were fired in a parking lot on Wednesday night, according to police.

Chief Gary Woodruff of the Lawrence Police Department reports that no one was hurt.

Just after 9:20 p.m. on Wednesday, Lawrence Central High School’s parking lot saw a disturbance following the Lawrence North boys basketball game, for which police were called. According to Woodruff, two bullets were fired during the commotion. Located immediately east of the I-465 junction at 7300 E. 56th St. is Lawrence Central High School.
