INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Two men were killed in a shooting on the southeast side of Indianapolis Thursday night.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police say the victims are both men in their late 20s or early 30s.

Police say one of the victims lived in the house where the shooting happened.

They say witnesses told them that he had lived there for about a week.

Police believe there were multiple witnesses to the shooting.

They also say there was a 4-year-old child in the home at the time the shooting happened. The child was not injured.

“It's just a trend we're seeing lately, very troubling and concerning to see young children put in harm's way when adults should be making better decisions,” said IMPD Major Richard Riddle. “Adult choices and adult decisions sometimes have adult consequences and those children are innocent victims. To have them subjected to this type of violence and having to witness that is very concerning.”

Police say they are still conducting interviews, but do not have a suspect at this time. Police say they are not sure how many different people may have fired shots inside the house.

The Marion County Coroner's office has identified the victims as 30-year-old Darrell Miller II and 31-year-old James Clark.
