Man dead after shooting on Indy’s east side

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A man is dead after a shooting on the east side of Indianapolis.

Police responded to a call about a person shot in the 1700 block of North Bolton Avenue around 5:50 a.m. This is near East 16th Street and North Ritter Avenue.

They found an adult male lying in the street and suffering from a gunshot wound.

Medics pronounced him dead at the scene. Detectives are canvassing the neighborhood talking to anyone that may have seen or heard something.
