INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One person is dead after a shooting Wednesday morning on the west side of Indianapolis, police said.

Just before 6:30 a.m., Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers found an unresponsive man in the grass near a home in the 7000 block of Pluto Drive. That’s near the intersection of Rockville Road and Girls School Road, just west of I-465.

Medics arrived and pronounced the man dead at the scene. IMPD did not share the man’s name or age.

One person was detained for questioning, but IMPD didn’t say if that individual was considered a suspect.

IMPD detectives continued their investigation and arrested a 16-year-old boy for their alleged role in the shooting. He is preliminarily charged with murder.

IMPD says one house near the scene was damaged by gunfire.

No other information was immediately available.

Anyone with information was asked to contact IMPD or Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
