INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Authorities are responding after two people died following two separate shootings early Sunday.

The first happened just after 3:30 a.m. in the 1400 block of North Tremont Street when officials said a woman was shot dead.

The woman was later identified as 28-year-old Jasmine Moore.

Authorities said she suffered a gunshot wound to the upper body and was transported to the hospital in critical condition where she later died.

It is unclear if the woman was the intended target of the shooting.

Suspect information has yet to be released.

The second shooting occurred just after 5 a.m. in the 600 block of North Luett Avenue.

Preliminary investigations showed that a woman shot a man she referred to as her ex-boyfriend.

When officials arrived, they found 53-year-old Jerry Etheridge dead inside the residence from a shotgun wound to the chest.

It was later determined that Etheridge and the woman lived at the residence together and are suspected boyfriend and girlfriend.

The woman was taken into custody without incident.

IMPD is urging anyone with information about either shootings to contact Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477.
