Woman fatally shot in subdivision on far southwest side

UPDATE: The woman has been identified as 37-year-old Ashlee Atkins.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A woman died in a shooting Wednesday night in a residential area on the far southwest side of Indianapolis, police say.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to an incomplete 911 call shortly after 6:10 p.m. Wednesday in the 8700 block of Hosta Way. That’s in the Camby Village subdivision off Mooresville Road east of State Road 67.

Police arrived to find the woman with a gunshot wound. She died at the crime scene.

Investigators believe some sort of disturbance between a male and a female led to the shooting inside a home. Their relationship has not been verified.

Officer William Young, an IMPD spokesman, says investigators are talking to a person of interest, and police believe there’s no continuing threat to the neighborhood.

“This is somewhat of a quiet area, and so something like this is a precedent in this area,” Young said.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office will release the woman’s name and address after informing family. The office also will determine the cause of death.

Anyone with information was asked to contact Detective Lottie Patrick at the IMPD homicide office at 317-327-3475 or e-mail her at
