INDIANAPOLIS — One man is dead following a shooting early Sunday morning on the city’s northwest side.
Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were dispatched just after 7:20 a.m. to the 7000 block of Bretton Wood Drive on report of a person shot. When they arrived, they found an adult male suffering from gunshot wounds.
According to IMPD, the victim was later pronounced dead at the scene by EMS workers.
IMPD Public Information Officer William Young said the scope of the violence over the past 24 hours is a reason for concern.
“t’s extremely alarming, our officers continue to be responsive to the community’s needs, we’re here,” Young said. “We’re responsive. Every time you see me you see groups of officers working extremely hard to bring these cases to a close. It’s very upsetting. Our officers share the same frustrations as the community does.”
While little other information was available in the morning hours of July 3, Young did detail the damage sustained to the house in the shooting.
“That front door was involved obviously because its part of the residence and you see damage there to that particular window,” he said. “So again we’ll be out here for some time trying to piece together exactly what occurred,” Young said. “This particular neighborhood, it’s a fairly quiet neighborhood, I don’t see that we have an extensive history in this neighborhood and or the residence in question.”
This is an ongoing investigation. Preliminary information is subject to change. We will continue to update this article as we receive more information.
