Four people were found dead, including a child, and an Amber Alert was issued for a 6-month-old girl after a woman found shot directed police to a home in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were called around 8:15 p.m. Saturday to the intersection of East New York and North Randolph streets on a report of a person shot.

Police initially said a woman was found with injuries consistent with a gunshot wound and that the victim was in critical condition. She was taken to an area hospital, where she was stable. When talking to her, investigators learned that there may be other victims at another location, Officer Genae Cook said at the scene.

Officers went to the 300 block of North Randolph Street, based on the woman’s information. They went into a home there and found four people who were dead. One of those people was a young child, according to Officer Cook. It is not clear how old the other victims were.

Police are looking for a 6-month-old girl who is missing from that home.

An Amber Alert has been issued for Malia Halfacre.

Police believe she is with 25-year-old Malik Halfacre. Police describe him as a black male, 5’8″ and 160 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Police say he was last seen wearing a gray hoodie and blue jeans.

They are believed to be in a 2012 black Chevy Impala with Indiana In God We Trust Plate CJA272. If the vehicle is spotted, citizens are encouraged to not approach the vehicle and immediately call 911.

Police believe Malia may be in danger and need to check her welfare.

Anyone with information is asked to call the IMPD Missing Persons Unit at 317-327-6160, Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS or dial 911.

Around 7 p.m. Saturday, police responded to the Sawmill Apartments on the city’s southeast side, where a woman had been found shot inside an apartment and was pronounced dead at the scene. Police are searching for a 7-year-old boy missing from that scene.
