BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana authorities said a man and woman were shot in the area of a large party in Bloomington.

Bloomington police said an officer on patrol early Sunday heard numerous gunshots and saw several hundred people fleeing a party. Officers and other first-responders found and aided a 23-year-old man who was shot once and an 18-year-old woman shot twice.

Both were listed in stable condition at a hospital.

Police said officers chased a man running with a handgun. Twenty-year-old Gabriel Alsman, who was arrested, is accused of resisting law enforcement, criminal recklessness with a firearm and marijuana possession. Investigators say the gun he had was reported stolen.

It wasn't immediately clear if Alsman has an attorney.

Officers say there was more than one shooter, but offered no information on additional suspects.
