2 dead in shooting at Indy Parks facility on east side
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Two people died in a shooting on Monday night near an Indianapolis park on the east side, police said.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department was called about 9:40 p.m. Monday to an investigation at Dubarry Park, 8702 E. 35th St. That’s a small Indy Parks facility southwest of East 38th Street and North Post Road.
The Marion County Coroner’s Office has identified the victims as 15-year-old Isaiah Jackson and 14-year-old Da’Vonta White.
No additional information was immediately available on what led to the shooting, and whether a suspect is being sought. Indy Parks facilities close at dusk.
Dubarry Park reopened in September 2017 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony that included the Indianapolis mayor. Indy Parks officials said in 2017 that they improved the facility with nearly $1 million that included grants from the Lilly Endowment and Finish Line.
