A man who was shot Friday night after allegedly being caught in the act burglarizing an Indianapolis home has died.

Deandre Twyman, 22, and another man reportedly kicked in the front door of a home in the 4500 block of Devon Court around 9:20 Friday night. The homeowner and his fiance were home at the time and shot Twyman in the stomach. A second suspect said to be helping Twyman was not injured. Both men ran away after shots were fired.

About 20 minutes later, police were called to Community East Hospital, where they found Twyman. He later died at the hospital.

Police said they know who the other suspect is, but did not release his name.

Neither the homeowner nor his fiance were hurt in the incident. As of 5:30 p.m. Saturday, police did not give any indication the homeowner would be charged with a crime and said he was cooperating with detectives.

The investigation is still open and anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-TIPS (8477) or the IMPD homicide office at (317) 327-3475.
