INDIANAPOLIS – One person died in a double shooting on the east side, police say.
According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, officers were dispatched to the 5800 block of East 21st Street. Dispatchers received multiple calls about the shooting beginning after 1 p.m., according to William Young, a public information officer for IMPD.
Police found two men had been shot. One of them was pronounced dead at the scene, Young said. The coroner’s office later identified the man as Christopher L. Summers, 40.
The second individual was “awake and breathing,” according to police, and taken to an area hospital.
Young said IMPD doesn’t have a suspect in custody at this time.
According to Young, the scene would be busy for “some time” as police investigated the shooting and talked to any potential witnesses. The shooting happened in a heavily traveled area and police are hoping someone will be able to provide them with additional information.
Young said police were still trying to piece together what led to the shooting, which investigators believe happened outside a home.
