East side death investigation

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A death investigation is underway on the city’s east side, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

Officers were called to a residence in the 600 block of North Temple Avenue just before 6 a.m.

Police said after arriving on the scene, a male victim was found with signs of trauma. Officers believe that some kind of altercation may have taken place beforehand, which might have led to the victim’s injuries.

The Marion County Coroner has identified the victim as 38-year-old Quentin Miller. An autopsy to determine Miller’s cause of death will be completed Friday.

The investigation affected pickup for Indianapolis Public School students at six schools.

IPS sent this statement:

If your student’s bus stop is in the area of Michigan and Temple streets, please be advised there is an active crime scene there. Police request children stay away from the area until it’s cleared.
