IMPD searching for suspects after bloody weekend

Local

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) –  Six people are dead after different shootings throughout Indianapolis over the weekend.

The latest victim was identified by the coroner’s office as 34-year-old Tommy Turintine.

Officers found him inside a car Monday morning in the 3200 block of North Campbell Avenue.

“As long as I’ve been here, 26 years, I’ve not heard of no one murdered, killed,” said Lee Bellamy, who lives near where Turintine was found.

It’s the second murder on North Campbell Avenue in three days.

“It’s tragic. I think it’s senseless. It didn’t have to happen the way that it happened,” said Cornell Wilson, after a shooting on Saturday on the 4400 block of North Campbell Avenue.

Wilson’s 30-year-old nephew, Charles Turner was killed in that incident.

“It’s pretty heartbreaking. It’s hard to lose somebody. Period,” said Wilson.

In addition to the North Campbell Avenue shootings, two individuals were found shot to death inside their car Sunday after crashing into an embankment on the west side. Also, 18-year-old Anthony Morris was killed Sunday night. And a 35-year-old killed on Friday on North High School Rd.

“These are preventable in nature in the sense of if people knew how to deal with conflict and wouldn’t go to a gun immediately some of these issues we wouldn’t be talking about today,” said Lt. Richard Riddle of IMPD.

Police are searching for suspects in many of the shootings. If you know anything you’re asked to call Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS.
