Coroner identifies woman, man killed in shootings on Indy’s west side over the weekend

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind – Indianapolis Metropolitan Police are investigating two shootings that left a man and a woman dead early Sunday morning.

The first shooting happened around 3:30 a.m. in the 1400 block of North Tremont Street, which is near Long’s Bakery and the Sunset Strip Gentleman’s Club.

Officers believe Jasmine Moore, 28, was walking on the sidewalk outside Long’s Bakery when the shooting occurred.  It happened at a time when 30 to 40 people were leaving the Sunset Strip.  The woman was rushed to Methodist Hospital, but died about an hour later.

The circumstances of what prompted the shooting were not clear early Sunday morning.  No suspects have been identified.  Police say the investigation into the incident is ongoing.

The second fatal shooting was reported just after 5:00 a.m. Sunday, a couple miles away.

Police say Jerry Etheridge, 53, was killed in a shooting at a home in the 600 block of North Luett Avenue.  IMPD says the shooting appears to be the result of a domestic disturbance.

When officers arrived at the home, they encountered a woman who told them she had shot Etheridge. Police say the woman voluntarily surrendered and was taken into custody without incident.

IMPD says the two shootings do not appear to be connected.
