INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a fatal shooting involving a teenager early Sunday morning.  The incident happened just after 7:30 a.m. in the 7500 block of Gordon Way.

Police have identified the victim as 15-year-old Roshun Johnson.

Police at the scene told 24-Hour News 8 Johnson was shot in the garage of a home. Six minors and an adult homeowner were inside the home at the time.

Police later said  they believe the suspect in the shooting was lured to the location of the shooting with a phone app.

It is believed that Johnson then pulled out a gun, threatening the suspect.  During a search of the suspect, the suspect then allegedly fired shots.  The suspect left the scene of the shooting and called police.  He was taken in to be interviewed and has since been released at this time.

Crews took the Johnson to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health where he later died.

A detective said several teenage friends were staying the night at the home and “someone from outside the residence” shot the teenager. Police at the scene said they did not believe the shooting was an accident, and it is being investigating as a homicide.

The investigation is still ongoing.

Anyone with information on this fatal shooting is asked to contact Crime Stopper at 317-262-8477.
