Man Orders Lyft as Getaway Car After Shooting Up Indiana Mobile Home

Police found a loaded Glock .40 handgun stashed under the passenger seat and a ziplock bag of marijuana in Ishtawi's backpack

A man fired shots in an Indiana mobile home and then ordered a Lyft as his getaway car, police say.

Issa Amer Ishtawi, 20, broke into a mobile home in Portage, Indiana, about ten miles east of Gary, on Tuesday, Portage Police Department said.

Ishtawi fired a gun inside the home before taking one of the residents outside, shooting several more rounds into the house and striking a man who was visiting in his left foot, police said.

Several rounds also struck nearby homes, police said, but nobody else was hurt.

Ishtawi ran away but was soon spotted by an officer as he rode in a car operated by a Lyft driver. The ride app company confirmed the incident to NBC News.
