INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Metro police confirm a motorcyclist was killed Friday in a crash southwest of downtown.

It happened about 10 p.m. on Addison Street near McCarty Street.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. The identity of the male victim, who family members at the scene say is in his late 30s, hasn't been released.
