Police arrived at the 2500 block of Bridgewood Court about midnight and found a man suffering from several gunshot wounds. At first, 911 dispatchers sent police to investigate after several calls of gunshots being heard in the area.

When police arrived they found 25-year-old Christopher Roberts of Indianapolis in the street and unresponsive. EMS crews arrived and despite lifesaving efforts, they pronounced him dead. 

Investigators believe that the victim walked up to a black SUV that had parked nearby. Shortly after walking up to the vehicle the victim was shot several times. Investigators believe the victim may have known his assailant or assailants.

The Marion County Coroner's Office will determine a cause of death after an autopsy is performed.
