(INDIANAPOLIS) - The man police say was shot while walking his dog near 56th Street and Dandy Trail Road is back home, and recovering.

Teresa Mackin of WISH TV8 reports that police believe this shooting was connected to a crime spree Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

64-year-old Rex Souter says he was walking his dog Daisy just after 9 a.m. Wednesday, as he does most mornings, when an SUV came up and slowed behind him.

"Not a word, not a word... a pistol came out of the window and bam bam bam bam," explained Souter. "I thought they were going to ask for directions.. that happens sometimes. But the guy pulled out a gun, a pistol, and started firing at me. I started zigging and zagging and running."

Souter says he ran for cover behind a home, pulling Daisy with him.

"As I looked back, I could see that blue SUV coming back into our neighborhood.. I thought.. oh.... I better hide somewhere."

He says he hid for just a minute, heard the SUV drive away, and ran to call 911. He says a bullet went through his side.

He apparently wasn't the first victim - or the last - in a dangerous crime spree.

Souter was treated and released from an area hospital with a wound in his side from that bullet.

Just down the street from this neighborhood, dive teams spent the afternoon and part of the evening searching for evidence that may have been thrown from the suspects' car near Eagle Creek Reservoir and 56 Street.
