Police tell Eyewitness News 21-year-old Tyler Webster was pronounced dead at the scene.

She called 911 and he was taken to Eskenazi Hospital.  Lewis' is not available.

Police believe Webster and Lewis had engaged in a gun battle. They are searching for Lewis' gun as part of their investigation.

Police are questioning a passenger in the dead man's car who was not injured.

A member of the Ten Point Coalition was in the area when the shooting took place.

"This is going to take the whole city to come together," said Sheila, "to come out in community to walk streets to come up with a plan for these young people to see that life is worth more than this."
