Two shootings in Indianapolis over the weekend may be connected say authorities.

Brian Zaragoza, 14, told WXIN that he was walking home from the grocery store when he heard someone drive by yelling a racial slur — and that’s when he felt a sharp pain in his side.

“Out of nowhere I heard a whistling, kind of like a bottle rocket then I felt something hit my side and I just lurched forward,” Zaragoza recalled. “I didn’t actually think it was a bullet until I saw the x-rays.”

According to WXIN, a second shooting took place at a taco stand just minutes before Zaragoza was shot. The suspects reportedly aimed at an SUV with an adult and two children inside, but no one was injured.
