INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a shooting on the city’s northeast side that left two men dead, plus another man and a woman injured.

According to IMPD, officers were called to the 7500 block of North Shadeland Avenue just after 2 a.m. Saturday for a report that a person had been shot. When they arrived, officers found four victims in the parking lot with gunshot wounds.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene, and a second man died as a result of his injuries shortly after arriving at the hospital.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office on Monday identified the two victims as 50-year-old Rodney Willis and 47-year-old Darnell Bell.

Police said the other two victims were taken to area hospitals and were listed in stable condition.

“We believe that the people who were involved in this had been frequenting a business that was open in this area just before that, however, preliminary information leads us to believe that everything that occurred, occurred in the parking lot area,” said Genae Cook, public information officer for IMPD.

As of early Sunday morning, a description had not been released for anyone suspected in the shooting.

This story is still developing. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.
