INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One man is dead after being the victim of a two person shooting Friday afternoon.

It happened just before 2:30 p.m. in the 3400 block of Timbersedge Drive in the parking lot of the Wildwood Village apartment complex.

One of the victims that was said to be in extremely critical condition, 33-year-old Kevin Dudley, died Saturday afternoon.

The other victim suffered non life-threatening injuries.

There is no suspect information at this time and the investigation remains ongoing.

Officer Jim Gillespie said a crime like this is disheartening around the holidays.

“We don’t want it around this time of year especially because this is the time of year for joy, love, and peace and that’s what we like to preach and we like people to practice that,” he said.

He also spoke to the record violent crime numbers for Indianapolis this year.

He said violent crime has risen across the country.

He believes efforts by IMPD to address the root causes of crime will eventually make a difference in decreasing crime.
