Multiple shot, including IMPD officer, in police shooting at east side bar

LATEST: The man who died was identified as 37-year-old Dominique Durham Sr., the Marion County Coroner’s Office said Monday.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One person died in a mass shooting where an Indianapolis police officer and four other people were injured Sunday morning.

One victim took themselves to Community East Hospital around 1:50 am where they died. The officer was last said to be in stable condition. The other four victims are expected to survive.

IMPD said it started as a disturbance but that turned into a police shooting in the parking lot of an east side bar.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says two IMPD officers were working off-duty in uniform at the 11:11 Bar and Grille, a location previously listed online as ‘Fuzion Ultra Lounge,’ at 9449 E. Washington St. around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

That bar is in a strip mall near the intersection of Washington Street and Mitthoefer Road near Cumberland.

Police said a disturbance broke out in the parking lot, and at some point, the two officers exchanged fire with at least one suspect. One of the officers was shot in the process.

Other officers responded to the scene and found four additional people had been shot. They were taken to a hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. IMPD provided a list of their genders and ages.

  • 33-year-old woman
  • 42-year-old man
  • 45-year-old man
  • 45-year-old man

Surveillance video obtained by News 8 from Supermarket De Mi Pais showed the parking lot but did not show the shooting. At least 20 gunshots could be heard in the video.

The name and age of the man who died at the hospital hasn’t been released.

Police have not said if anyone has been arrested or provided information on any suspects. Officers said they did find a handgun at the scene.

All officers who fired their weapons were placed on administrative leave following the shooting.

Multiple officers wore body cameras which were activated during the shooting.

IMPD Chief Chris Bailey released this statement on the violence Sunday afternoon.

Early this morning, I responded to an unnecessary and chaotic incident, where one of our officers was wounded by gunfire. I’m relieved to report that the officer is on the mend and in high spirits. He is ready to get home to his family and get back to serving our community as soon as he is able.

I am proud of the courage and bravery both officers displayed during this incident. This incident serves as a stark reminder of the risks our law enforcement officers face each day while working to keep our community safe.

I extend my deepest gratitude to all who responded to the scene to help during this critical incident, as well as to all the IMPD officers who are back at work today protecting and serving.

Please keep our officer, his family, our department, and all those who were impacted by this senseless violence in your thoughts.

In the coming days, weeks, and months, I ask that you stand by our officers and professional staff, offering support and encouragement during this challenging time.

Chief Chris Bailey, IMPD
