INDIANAPOLIS – Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) Homicide detectives are investigating after a man died from injuries sustained during a shooting on the city’s north side.
Just before 5:40 p.m. on July 6, 2017, officers were dispatched to the 200 block of W 38th St on reports of shots fired. Responding officers arrived on-scene and located a male in his 20’s, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. EMS personnel transported the man to Eskenazi Hospital where he later died despite the best life-saving efforts. The other involved subject called police and voluntarily turned himself in to officers as they arrived on-scene.
Homicide detectives responded and canvassed the area for witnesses. During the course of the investigation two firearms were recovered from the scene. The other subject, who turned himself in, cooperated with investigators and claimed that he defended himself during the confrontation. After detectives conducted a thorough and extensive investigation and had an initial consultation with the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, he was released.
The Indianapolis-Marion County Forensic Services Agency responded to assist in identifying and collecting potential forensic evidence. The Marion County Coroner’s Office should be contacted for the name of the deceased after proper next-of-kin notification has been made. The MCPO will review all facts of the case once the investigation is complete and make a decision on whether charges will be filed.
