Local

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Two men are dead are dead after a shooting Monday night on the east side in an apparent home invasion, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

IMPD said it responded to a report of a person shot just before 11 p.m. to a home in the 3500 block of North Priscilla Court. That is southwest of the intersection of East 38th Street and North Arlington Avenue.

After arriving on the scene, officers discovered two men unconscious in the home. Officers said both had sustained a gunshot wound and were pronounced dead on the scene.

A homicide lieutenant said the father returned home and noticed the door was opened and called the police. It appears that this was a home invasion robbery. 

Police said they were uncertain how the two robbers got inside the home; however, one of the decedents was a robber. The other robber fled the scene.

Investigators believe the shooting was an isolated incident. 

No suspect or victim information has been released.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477.
