Woman shot, killed; Postal Inspection Service to lead investigation, FBI says

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A woman has died after she was shot Monday afternoon on the city’s east side.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and emergency crews were called to a person shot shortly before 4 p.m. in the 400 block of Denny Street. That’s just southeast of East Michigan Street and North Sherman Drive.

The woman died later at a hospital, IMPD said Monday night. The Marion County Coroner’s Office has identified the woman as 45-year-old Angela Summers.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service and IMPD are investigating the homicide and the FBI is assisting.

An IMPD spokesman said it could not confirm the woman was a mail carrier.

The FBI said, however, that the Postal Inspection Service is leading the investigation as IMPD had said it relates to a postal worker.

The U.S. Inspection Service is now offering up to a $50,000 reward for information in the killing.

The Postal Inspection Service did not immediately answer a request for information from News 8, and a local representative of the U.S. Postal Service said she could not comment.

IMPD provided no information on a possible suspect or whether the shooting was an isolated incident.
