INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A person was shot and killed Friday night on the city’s northeast side.

Officers from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to a call of shots fired just before 10 p.m. in the 3600 block of Mitthoeffer Road on a report of shots fired.

Capt. Harold Turner with IMPD said officers arrived to find a male shot on the sidewalk. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim has since been identified as 19-year-old Alyjah Mahammad.

It’s not yet known whether the victim lived in the nearby apartments, Turner said.

The shooting came hours after the Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the victim of a Friday morning fatal shooting.
