INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Friends and family of the Indianapolis man killed on a morning walk Tuesday said a final goodbye Saturday morning.

The funeral for 24-year old Nathan Trapuzzano was held Saturday morning at Holy Rosary Catholic Church.

He was shot and killed Tuesday morning while out for his morning walk. Police released surveillance video of Trapuzzano’s alleged attackers on Tuesday. Detectives believe the suspects targeted Trapuzzano for a robbery as he went on a daily walk. No arrests have been made in the case.

Trapuzzano worked as a software engineer at Ivy Tech. The school has donated a two-year scholarship to his unborn daughter.
