MONROE COUNTY, Ind. – An Indianapolis man was killed in a shooting early Sunday morning in Monroe County.

At around 12:30 a.m., police were dispatched to the 2200 block of E. Pointe Rd. on the report of a fight that escalated into gun violence. When authorities arrived, officers determined three people sustained injuries.

A 21-year-old man, later identified as Kemontie Johnson, was pronounced dead in the scene. A second male was flown to an Indianapolis hospital in critical condition.

A third victim was treated and later released. Detectives believe there was only one shooter, who fled the scene.

“We do believe that the shooter came to Monroe County to attend the party and is not a local resident. We do not feel that anyone located near the area where the event took place would be in any form of additional danger,” authorities wrote on the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department Facebook page.
