Man dead, woman and baby stable after shooting in residential area on 12th Street

Breaking from News 8 at 11 p.m.: Woman, man, baby injured in shooting

Latest: The Marion County Coroner’s Office has identified the man who died as 19-year-old Jaden Omarion Thrasher.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man died, a young woman had graze wounds, and a year-old baby was OK after a shooting Monday night in a residential area on the near-east side of Indianapolis, police say.

Medics and Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were sent shortly before 10:10 p.m. Monday to the 4000 block of East 12th Street. That’s a short distance northeast of the intersection of East 10th Street and North Sherman Drive.

The three people were outside when they were shot, police say. The 19-year-old woman was taken to a hospital with what police say were graze wounds. The man had initially been listed as being in critical condition, but later died upon arrival at a hospital.

IMPD originally reported that the infant had graze wounds, as well, but confirmed Tuesday morning that the child had not been shot.

No additional information was immediately available on the people shot, what may have led to the shooting, who if anyone is in custody, or whether the area is safe.

Anyone with information about this incident should call Detective Douglas Morning in the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or e-mail.
