INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Three people are dead after a shooting on the city’s east side early Sunday morning.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office on Sunday night identified the victims as:

  • James Upshaw, 27
  • Juan Reveria, 32
  • Shanya Jones, 33

According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, officers were called to 5462 Massachusetts Avenue just after 2:30 a.m. Sunday on reports of a person shot. That’s the address for Grand sports bar on the city’s east side in the area of North Olney Street and Roosevelt Avenue.

When officers arrived to the scene they found three adults who had been shot. The victims were pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the victims were found outside the bar. It is unclear if any altercation occurred inside before the shooting.

The shooting is believed to be an isolated incident.

A short time after the fatal shooting, four people walked into Community Hospital East suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Police on Sunday night said those four people, who were stable, were connected to the fatal shooting on Massachusetts Avenue.

Police are asking the community to cooperate with the investigation and share any information they have about the shooting by calling the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.
