INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Three people were shot and killed overnight at an east side apartment complex, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officials said.

It happened around 11:30 Sunday night at the Marina Apartments, near 21st Street and Post Road.

Police have released very little information, but they say they don’t think this was a random act of violence and they have leads into who is responsible.

When they arrived, police say they found one man who was shot lying outside the apartment. Two more victims, a man and a woman, were found inside the apartment. They had also been shot. All three died at the scene.

It’s also not known if they lived at the apartment complex. Police say they did find evidence of drugs inside the apartment.

Monday afternoon, the Marion County Coroner’s Office released the names of two victims. They have been identified as 59-year-old James Czajkowski and 58-year-old Stephen Herold. The female victim’s name has not been released, pending notification of family.

Autopsies were expected Monday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-TIPS.
