Teen fatally shot in Lawrence golf course community

Breaking News: Boy dead in Lawrence shooting

LAWRENCE, Ind. (WISH) — A 16-year-old boy died after a shooting was reported Tuesday night in a golf course community in Lawrence, police say.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the teen as Andre Manuel Lara.

Lawrence Police Department was called about 8:40 p.m. Tuesday to a report of a person shot in the 4600 block of Birmingham Drive. That’s in the Winding Ridge housing subdivision off East 46th Street between North German Church Road and North County Line Road.

In the computer-aided dispatch system, the call later was changed from “person shot” to “murder homicide.”

Travis Cline, deputy chief of police, said Lara was taken in critical condition to a hospital, where he died.

News 8 images from the crime scene showed a small SUV or minivan, a pickup, and three bicycles in the street surrounded by police tape.

No additional information was immediately available what may have led to the shooting or whether a suspect was being sought.

This story has been updated to include the boy’s name and age.
