Multiple people injured in Indianapolis stabbing

A knife-wielding man injured three people in an attack in Indianapolis after being told to stop playing a siren on a bullhorn, authorities said.

James Anderson Jr., Edward Lee Atkins, and Johnny Gilson were injured in the attack Saturday afternoon on the American Legion Mall and outside the Central Library located across the street, a police report said.

Gary Madison of Indianapolis faces three preliminary charges of battery by means of a deadly weapon, jail records showed.

Four people, including Madison, were hospitalized after the attack, two in critical condition and two in serious condition, Indianapolis Fire Department Battalion Chief Rita Reith said.

Their medical conditions Sunday were not clear, but a police report said Madison was being held at the Marion County Jail, Chicago Tribune reported.
