Man dies in shooting on Indy’s far east side

Latest: The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the man who died as 27-year-old Trevon Smith.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indianapolis police are investigating a fatal Tuesday morning shooting on the city’s far east side.

Just before 3 a.m., Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers responded to a report of shots fired at an apartment complex near 10th Street and Mitthoeffer Road.

Officers arrived and found a man outside who had been shot. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition but did not survive.

IMPD has little information on what happened and no arrests have been made.

Investigators spoke with family members at the scene but are still looking for witnesses and people who might have information on what happened.

“I think the community is tired of seeing a string of gun violence,” IMPD Public Information Officer William Young said at the scene. “We always need that partnership with the community and we hope that’s what will happen in this particular case.”
