1 dead, 1 in critical after near west side shooting

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man died and another person was hospitalized in critical condition after a shooting on the city’s near west side.

Police were called to the 1400 block of Tremont Street, just south of 16th Street and Lafayette, around 7:30 p.m. Saturday on a report of a person shot.

Officers arrived to find a man in his 30s deceased at the scene, Capt. Michael Elder with Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.

A second person believed to have been shot at the same scene arrived on their own at IU Health Methodist Hospital and was in critical condition on Saturday night.

No suspect information was provided on Saturday night.

Last July, 28-year-old Jasmine Moore was shot and killed in the same area. Later in the month, three people were shot during Moore’s funeral procession, including Richard Grundy III, a man referred to by local authorities as a murderous gang leader.
