INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One man has died and another person is stable at a hospital after two separate shootings about 20 minutes apart Tuesday afternoon on the east side.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and emergency medical crews were sent to a report of shots fired about 4:50 p.m. near East 32nd Street and Forest Manor Avenue. That’s a residential area on the east side just northeast of the intersection of East 30th Street and North Sherman Drive. The person died at the scene. IMPD has no immediate word on whether the area was safe, a possible suspect or what led to the shooting. The man will be identified later by the Marion County Coroner’s Office.

Just after 5:10 p.m., IMPD and medical crews were sent to a report of a person shot in the 300 block of South Rural Street. That’s just a few blocks north of Southeastern Avenue. Again, IMPD had no immediate word on whether the area was safe, a possible suspect or what led to the shooting. No additional information was available on the victim.
