1 man dead after being found shot on UIndy campus

Crime in Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS — One man has died after being found shot on the University of Indianapolis campus on Indy’s south side.

IMPD officers were dispatched to the 1200 block of Campus Drive just before 10 p.m. Tuesday. Upon arrival, they found a man in the parking lot who appeared to have been shot.

He was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Police confirmed he died from his injuries. The coroner’s office later identified him as Dazmond Morgan, 26.

“We don’t believe that he’s a student here,” said IMPD Night Watch Commander Kerry Buckner. “We’re not really sure what happened.” 

It’s unclear if he was shot on the campus or somewhere else. The shooting is under investigation, and IMPD says they will work with UIndy police as the investigation continues.

The University of Indianapolis provided a statement on the shooting:

“At approximately 9:30 pm last night in a parking lot on the boundary of campus, an individual not affiliated with the University of Indianapolis was found with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. The individual was transported to a local hospital where they later passed away. The ongoing investigation is being conducted by IMPD and UIndy Police are assisting.”

Anyone with information about this incident should contact Detective Gary Tom at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or email him at Gary.Toms@indy.gov
