The person was pronounced dead at the scene.

There are currently no suspects in the shooting, IMPD Public Information Officer William Young told IndyStar at the scene.

Young described the neighborhood as being a “fairly quiet neighborhood” and IMPD is currently speaking with residents around the neighborhood asking if they may have seen or heard anything.

The front door glass window at the residence of the shooting was partially broken. Young said it’s still too early in the investigation process to know if a break-in was involved with the shooting.

Young said anyone with information about the shooting can call the IMPD homicide detective line at 317-327-3475.

This is an ongoing investigation and information subject to change. This story will be updated.
