Man dies in early morning shooting on Indy’s northeast side

UPDATE: The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the man as 31-year-old Joshua Hopson.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One man died after a shooting early Wednesday morning on the northeast side of Indianapolis, police said.

Just before 3 a.m., Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers found Hopson fatally shot outside an apartment building in the 3400 block of Alsuda Court. That’s an address within the Lodge Apartments complex just off Binford Boulevard and a few blocks north of 46th Street.

IMPD says investigators believe the shooting occurred after an argument. The shooting was an isolated incident and there was no known danger to the public.

No arrest has been made and police did not identify any potential suspects.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office will determine exactly how and why Hopson died.
