INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man was killed and a woman injured after a double shooting on the city’s east side.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office on Monday identified the man who died as 25-year-old Kent Edwards.

Officers were called to the 8100 block of East 37th Place just before 8 p.m. Friday on a report of a person shot.

IMPD Public Information Officer Christopher Wilburn confirmed that Edwards had died while a woman was taken to Eskenazi Hospital.

Police said they are talking to witnesses as well as looking for a vehicle in connection with the incident, though no description has been provided.

Last month, 15-year-old Kevin Rainey was shot in the 8100 block of East 37th Street, a few blocks away from Friday night’s double shooting. Rainey was hospitalized but later died of several gunshot wounds.
