INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating after three adult males were found dead in an north side apartment.
Just after 6:12 p.m., police were dispatched to Somerset Lake Apartments located in the 7800 block of Somerset Bay on a report of a shooting.
IMPD said they found three males unresponsive and two other individuals in the apartment. The three men killed were identified as Dominique Miller, 25, Jordan Wright, 25, and Justin Crowder, 19.
The two others, who were not injured, went with police for questioning to help with the investigation.
Other witnesses reported seeing a couple of people leave the apartment building, jump into a car and drive off right after the shooting.
Police aren’t releasing any information about the car or description of the suspects because they’re confident in the speed of the investigation and want to build a solid case.
“We have good leads and homicide detectives are going to be working on it and we are confident that we’re going to have a suspect in custody in the near future,” said IMPD Captain Harold Turner.
Turner says it appears the shooters targeted the apartment for some reason, but right now they can’t say for sure whether the motive was related to money, anger or drugs.
No matter the reason, the crime still surprises police.
“Zero. No calls here whatsoever,” said Turner. “This is a very good apartment building, this community is solid, so, um, so it’s a surprise.”
The neighbors at Somerset Lakes apartments are just as shocked as police.
“We immediately came outside to see if you know, if it was somewhere close, and it was pretty much outside our door,” said Tina Harmon, who lives a couple buildings down from where the shooting happened. “I mean, I know crime can happen anywhere, but it’s kind of unfortunate.”
Police say the incident was isolated.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.
