Shooting on Indy’s south side leaves 1 dead, may be tied to robbery

News

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating after a man was killed in a shooting Thursday night.

The IMPD said the shooting happened in the 2900 block of Carson Drive around 10:30 p.m. Thursday. When officers arrived, they found a man with injuries consistent with a gunshot wound.

While he was initially awake and breathing, IMPD said the victim has since died.

Investigators tell us the victim was shot after coming home from work and parking his car. They believe the shooting may have been the result of a robbery.

“We know there were at least two people involved. It appears that it might be a robbery at this point but we’re not certain,” said IMPD Major Kerry Buckner.

“He [the victim] actually parked behind his house in a little cul-de-sac area, and that’s where he parked every day when he got back from working his multiple jobs trying to support his family. So it looks like somebody must have been waiting. That’s the only thing we can tell at this point.”

Police ask anyone with information to come forward.
