HERE ARE 5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW TODAY
Triple murder on Indy's east side:
Late Sunday night, police responded to a call near 21st St. and Post Road, near Warren Central High School. They found one man with a gunshot wound outside an apartment, and two more victims inside. All three died from their injuries at the scene. Police believe the gunman knew the victims. Police also found narcotics inside the apartment, which leads them to believe the crime was drug related.
Temperatures will continue their climb today, reaching into the upper 60s. Winds gusting up to 30 miles per hour will make for a breezy day. The nice weather will last a few more days before scattered showers and thunderstorms move in to central Indiana.
Get ready to adjust your morning commute as a stretch of U.S. 31 will be closing for several weeks starting on Friday. The road between Old Meridian and 136th Street is being transformed into a limited access highway. Workers will be taking out traffic lights and adding on and off ramps. The intersection at Illinois Street and Spring Mill Road will be closed for the next three days while new storm drains are installed.
Open Enrollment Ends Today:
Today is the last day for Hoosiers to start the sign-up process for healthcare under the Affordable Care Act. Over 6 million Americans have signed up already, but there's still a big push to add more users. So long as an applicant has started signing up by the end of today, they will have until mid-April to finish the process. Otherwise, the uninsured will have to pay a cash penalty.
March Madness Ends:
The last game of the NCAA Midwest regionals was won by the Kentucky Wildcats. The tournament brought 40,000 people into downtown Indianapolis, and city officials say those visitors spent $20 million over the weekend at restaurants and hotels. Kentucky, Florida, Uconn and Wisconsin make up the final four teams that will play on Saturday at Cowboys Stadium near Dallas, Texas.
