IMPD: 1 dead, 1 injured in Sunday night shooting near Castleton
Shooting leaves 1 dead, 1 injured
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indianapolis police took multiple people for questioning after one man died and another was injured in a Sunday evening shooting near Castleton.
Around 7:20 p.m., officers from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to a reported shooting in the 7300 block of Railhead Court near 75th Street and Hague Road.
Officers at the scene didn’t find anyone shot, but they did “find evidence of a shooting and learned that a private vehicle possibly left the scene with a person who was shot,” IMPD said in a release.
Police tracked down the vehicle, followed it to Community North Hospital, and learned that a man with a gunshot wound was inside. At last check., he was listed in critical condition.
A short time later, another man with gunshot wounds was found at a rehab hospital on Clearvista Drive. He was taken to Community North Hospital and died of his injuries, IMPD says.
The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the man Monday as 18-year-old Quarran Hopkins.
Homicide detectives believe both men were shot at the home on Railhead Court. Several guns were found at the scene, and multiple people were taken for questioning.
IMPD says the two men knew each other and that the shooting was not a random act.
“Detectives have identified multiple people who may have been involved and are working to determine if others were involved as well,” IMPD said in a release.
The Marion County Coroner’s Office will release the name of the deceased once his relatives have been notified.
Anyone with information was asked to call Detective David Miller at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or by email at David.Miller2@indy.gov.
