Scene of double shooting on 31st St on Indy's east side

NDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – An 18-year-old man has died following a shooting last Thursday on the city’s east side.

Officers were called to the scene in the 3800 block of 31st St. near N. Sherman Dr. at about 9:51 p.m. to investigate a report of a shots fired. When authorities arrived, they found the two victims.

They were transported to the hospital in critical condition. 18-year-old Deayris Perkins passed away from his injuries later at the hospital.

Police said they have everyone believed to be involved in the incident detained and those people are being transported downtown to be interviewed.

A third person was shot on the east side around the same time, but that shooting appears to be the result of an attempted robbery at a McDonald’s.
