INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — IMPD is investigating after three people were fatally shot on the city’s north side.

Police were called to the 7800 block of Somerset Bay — that’s off 71st Street and Keystone Avenue — around 6:17 p.m. Sunday on reports of a person shot.

Officer Aaron Hamer with Indianapolis Metropolitan Police confirmed the three people shot have died.

IMPD officers at the scene tell 24-Hour News 8 that they arrived to find three male victims in an apartment at the Somerset Lakes apartment complex. Police say the victims were pronounced dead at the scene and had each been shot at least once.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office has identified the victims as 25-year-old, Dominique Miller, 25-Jordan Wright and 19-year-old Justin Crowder.

Two other people in the apartment at the time were not shot, according to police. Detectives have transported them downtown for questioning.

Police say they believe the victims were targeted and that the investigation will be wrapped up quickly.

Two people were seen fleeing the apartment complex in a car, but it’s still not clear whether more than one shooter was involved in the incident.

IMPD is not releasing additional suspect or victim details, but they do say the apartment complex has no history of police calls.
