Indianapolis Metropolitan police investigate fatal shooting on east side
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Sept. 10, 2015) – Indianapolis Metropolitan police are investigating a fatal shooting on the east side.
Police arrived at a home in the 3300 block of North Sherman Drive shortly after noon and found a man on the driveway next to a truck suffering from a gun shot wound.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Pastor Charles Harrison with the Ten Point Coalition was at the scene to speak with officers and offer support to family and friends.
“And here we are again today. Someone is dead, you have a grieving family and now they have to try to make sense of this and put the pieces of their lives back together,” said Harrison.
“It’s troubling to say the least. We’re perplexed and we’re gonna do everything that we can to find some reasonable solutions to solve this case that is presented to us,” said IMPD Public Information Officer Chris Wilburn.
Neighbors tell CBS4 News, the victim and his wife had just moved in about 2 weeks ago.
One man who did not want to be identified was working on a car across the street at the time of the shooting.
“I hear somebody arguing. I didn’t really pay too much attention to it. I remember the guy saying, “Hell no, that isn’t gonna happen.” and a minute and a half two minutes later, I heard one loud gun shot. That was it,” said the witness.
Neighbors also say the victim had been seen driving the pickup truck around the block several times Thursday morning before parking it at the home.
“We certainly will learn as much as we can to see what may have happened. If he was in fear of his life, why he was in fear of his life and what may have been going on,” said Harrison.
The name of the victim has not yet been released and no arrests have been made.
