INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Police have arrested a man for his alleged role in a deadly shooting Sunday on the west side of Indianapolis, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

21-year-old Lyman Spurlock was arrested Monday. The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will review the case and make a decision regarding charges.

The shooting occurred around 9:45 p.m. in the 9000 block of Mt. Shasta N. Drive, located in a neighborhood near 10th Street and N. Raceway Road.

IMPD says when officers arrived on the scene, a man, later identified as Leeshawn Parker, was found suffering from a gunshot wound. Parker was pronounced dead at the scene.

The shooting occurred inside a home on Mt. Shasta N. Drive, where police say multiple shots were fired within a room occupied by several individuals. Parker was injured during this shooting, while several other shots exited the home and struck vehicles outside, according to authorities.

Police say it was fortunate no other individuals were struck by stray bullets.

A person of interest was taken into custody Sunday, according to police, and was questioned by investigators. It is unclear if that person was Spurlock.

Police also say children are known to live at the home where the shooting occurred, but they were unsure if any of the children were in the home at the time of the shooting.

Anyone with information about this incident should call the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477 or (TIPS).
