Indianapolis Metropolitan Police detectives are investigating a fatal shooting on the far east side of the city in the 1900 block of Heather Court Saturday morning. 

Officers were sent after a 911 call reporting a person shot.  The officers arrived and found 31-year-old Dexter Smith had obvious signs of trauma. He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Witnesses told police that they saw someone running from the house about 30 minutes before the body was discovered.

Detectives are trying to identify any suspects and following several leads.  They do not believe that it was a random act.
