INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A SWAT situation related to a fatal shooting on the northeast side has ended following several hours of investigation.
Just before 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, officers from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to a call of a person shot in the 6200 block of East 44th Place and arrived to find a man with lying in the front yard suffering from at least one gunshot wound. First responders arrived shortly after, and the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators believed there were people in a nearby home, possibly armed, with information pertaining to the shooting, so they called in IMPD Crisis Negotiation and SWAT. According to IMPD, three people surrendered from inside the nearby residence within minutes of the Crisis Negotiation Team arriving on-scene.
Authorities took the three individuals into custody for questioning but say those in custody are not considered suspects at this time.
While police initially believed a fourth person was inside the residence, by Sunday around 4:15 p.m., investigators determined no one else was inside the residence.
The victim’s name and cause and manner of death has not yet been released, pending autopsy by the Marion County Coroner’s Office.
If you have any information regarding this incident, you’re encouraged to call IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
