2 dead in shooting near 29th and MLK

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Two people are dead after a shooting near the intersection of W. 29th Street and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. Sunday night.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the people who died as Rosalba Torres Arceo, 25, and David Swanigan, 22.

At 10:48 p.m. Sunday, officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to a report of shots fired near the intersection of West 29th Street and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street.

When officers arrived, they located Arceo and Swanigan inside a vehicle in a parking lot near a BP gas station.

Arceo was pronounced dead at the scene. Swanigan was taken to a hospital where he later died.
