Woman dies after found shot on West 38th Street near White River

UPDATE: The victim has been identified as 21-year-old Alexis Dompier.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A woman found shot Thursday afternoon at West 38th Street and White River Parkway East Drive has died, police said.

Emergency crews including Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were called shortly after 2:30 p.m. Thursday to the scene of a person shot. The location is just east of the White River and south of the Newfields art venue.

IMPD found the woman, who’s not been identified, dead in the passenger seat of a car. Investigators think the driver managed to flag someone down to call 911. Officers were continuing Thursday night to determine where the shooting actually happened.

The woman’s death was the first of two fatal shootings on Thursday. About 11:30 p.m., a person was found dead in a west-side residential neighborhood after being shot.

Anyone with information on the shooting at 38th Street and White River Parkway East Drive was asked to contact Detective Jose Torres at the IMPD homicide office at 317-327-3475 or jose.torres@indy.gov

IMPD responded to at least four other shootings Thursday:

  • A person was found a person shot sometime before 4:30 a.m. Thursday in an apartment complex in the 5140 block of Southgreen Drive. That’s southeast of U.S. 31 and Thompson Road on the far south side. The person was last reported to be in critical condition but stable.
  • Sometime before 2:15 p.m. Thursday, a person was found shot at East 19th Street and North Rural Street. That person was last reported to be in critical condition. A News 8 photographer says about eight blocks were cordoned off in the area during the investigation. A spokesman for IMPD says representatives from a gun task force and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were doing an unrelated investigation in the same area when the shooting happened.
  • A person who’d been shot walked into IU Health Methodist Hospital shortly after 9:20 p.m. Thursday. The person’s condition was not immediately known, but it’s initially thought the shooting happened in a residential area in the 3200 block of Brouse Avenue. That’s a block east of North Keystone Avenue off East 32nd Street.
  • Indianapolis police officers shortly after 10:05 p.m. Thursday found a person shot at Community Hospital East, 1500 N. Ritter Ave. The person was in stable condition. No information was given on where the shooting happened.
