INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man died Thursday night after a shooting on the east side, police said.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department was called to a “person shot” report at 7:45 p.m. Thursday in the 1200 block of North Tuxedo Street. That’s in a residential area north of East 10th Street between North Rural Street and North Sherman Drive.
Officers found the man, who was unresponsive. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition, where he died. No other information was immediately available about the man.
Police were looking for witnesses. No information had been collected about a suspect or a vehicle involved, but the shooting is believed to be isolated, said IMPD spokesman Michael Hewitt.
“With it being Halloween and trick-or-treating hours between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., it may be safe to assume there were kids out and about, but we don’t feel like anyone else was injured, especially any children,” Hewitt said.
