IMPD: 1 dead, 1 injured in Saturday morning shootings

A person was found shot shortly after 5:30 a.m. on the city's northeast side, just after a second person walked into the hospital with a gunshot wound.

INDIANAPOLIS — IMPD is investigating a shooting and another injury Saturday morning that left one person dead and another in stable condition.

Shortly after 5 a.m., a man walked into IU Health-Methodist Hospital with an apparent gunshot wound. Police said he was in stable condition, but investigators have not determined where the shooting took place.

Just after 5:30 a.m., another person was found in the area of 19th and Oxford streets on the near northeast side and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A passerby alerted police after seeing a person down in the street.

The Marion County Coroner identified the dead man as 45-year-old Jose Suchite. His cause of death is pending, according to the coroner.

Police are working to determine if the two incidents could be connected.

Anyone with information about the shooting on Oxford Street should call Detective Gregory Shue at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or e-mail the detective at Gregory.Shue@indy.gov. Anonymous tips can be left with Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477 (TIPS).

Another man was shot earlier Saturday in what police are calling a domestic case. He showed up at Community Hospital North just after 1:20 a.m. and was reported to be in stable condition, but he would not cooperate with investigators, according to an IMPD incident report.
