INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man died Friday night in a shooting on the city’s near-north side.

Around 9:45 p.m. Friday in the 3000 block of North Park Avenue, near 30th Street and College Avenue, officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to a possible person shot.

They arrived to find a man in his 40s who appeared to be suffering from trauma. Part of that trauma appeared to be from a gunshot wound, Maj. Harold Turner said at the scene.
