INDIANAPOLIS — A man is dead after a shooting on Indy’s east side.
According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the shooting occurred around 6:10 p.m. near the intersection of Orion Avenue and Bancroft Street — a residential area near Emerson Avenue and Brookville Road.
Police said officers located an adult male victim who was listed as being in critical condition outside of a home. That man, IMPD said around 7:50 p.m., was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.
In that same update just before 8 p.m., IMPD said that a person of interest has been identified and is in custody. Police said officers are no longer actively looking for anyone.
On scene, IMPD Lt. Shane Foley said that IMPD, SWAT and hostage negotiators responded to the home where the victim was found outside and that a standoff occurred with a person of interest who was inside.
One woman, Foley said, safely evacuated the residence during the stand-off. Later, IMPD officers took a person of interest in the shooting into custody. No force, Foley said, was used to resolve the situation.
IMPD said that no further information will be immediately released as it is early in the investigation. Detectives are looking to speak with witnesses in the area that may have seen what occurred leading up to or after the shooting.
