Police are searching for a gunman suspected of shooting a woman multiple times outside of an Indianapolis day care early Tuesday, authorities said.
The shooting — believed to be a domestic dispute — occurred around 7:20 a.m. ET in the parking lot of the Eagle View KinderCare in Indianapolis’ west side, according to NBC affiliate WTHR.
The victim was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
The suspect is identified as 33-year-old Christopher Justice, who was last seen driving a black Ford, police said. Justice is the ex-husband of the victim, WTHR reported.
The woman had just dropped off her two children at the day care when the shooting occurred, investigators said. Witnesses at a nearby McDonald's said they heard at least seven gunshots.
No one else was hurt in the shooting, and parents returned to the day care to pick up their children.
