Police respond to deadly double shooting on east side

Crime in Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLS — Two people are dead after a shooting on the east side Tuesday morning.

Police responded to the 8200 block of Gilmore Road, near E. 21st Street and Post Road, shortly before 3 a.m. for a report of a person shot.

IMPD confirmed an adult male and adult female were found dead of apparent gunshot wounds at a home.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the deceased as 34-year-old Davidtra Henderson and 35-year-old Dorrell Paterson.

IMPD had said preliminary information suggested the shooting may have have been a murder-suicide that was domestic in nature. The coroner’s office confirmed that Monday afternoon and said it appeared Paterson shot Henderson before killing himself.

Police say children were inside the home during the shooting, but they were not hurt. Officers say there is no threat to the community.

It was a busy overnight for police. Earlier around 1:15 a.m., IMPD responded to a quadruple shooting on Arborcrest Drive on the city’s east side. Four men were critically injured in an apparent gun fight.
