2 dead in shooting believed to be domestic-related

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police said a shooting early Tuesday on the city’s east side that left a man and woman dead is believed to be domestic-related.

An early investigation from police led them to believe the shooting was a murder-suicide.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office has identified the victims as Davidtra Henderson, 34, and Dorrell Paterson, 35.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were called before 3 a.m. Tuesday to a house in the 8200 block of Gilmore Road. That’s residential area north of I-70 between the I-465 and North Post Road interchanges.

IMPD is unclear as to the exact relationship between the man and the woman.

Officers said children were at home at the time of the shooting. However, no children were hurt, and it’s unclear as to how many children were at the shooting and their ages.

This deadly shooting comes hours after four people were critically injured in a shooting on the northeast side.
