Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department homicide detectives continue to search for information that will help them identify a suspect or suspects that shot and killed a woman and critically injured her husband.
On Monday, April 3, 2017, North District officers were dispatched to the 4000 block of Meadows Dr. on the report of multiple people shot. An off-duty Marion County Sheriff’s Office deputy was flagged down by a male victim also suffering from at least one gunshot wound. When officers arrived, inside an apartment building they found a female victim suffering from at least one gunshot wound. Both victims were rushed to Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Hospital in critical condition. Despite efforts of medical personnel at the hospital, the female victim tragically succumbed to her injuries, and the male victim, later determined to be her husband, remains in critical condition. No other injuries were reported.
Detectives have not released any reliable suspect information but continue to seek additional information that would aid in this investigation. The Indianapolis-Marion County Forensics Services Agency processed the crime scene for forensic evidence, and detectives canvassed the area looking for additional information. Detectives and north district officers will again be in the area today to search for witnesses and additional information. Callers are encouraged to call lead investigator Detective E. Daniels at 317.327.3310. Callers can also call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317.262.8477 or (TIPS).
