IMPD investigating overnight shootings that left 1 dead, 3 injured Sunday

Police found a woman shot on the east side and three other people shot on the south side early Sunday.

INDIANAPOLIS — IMPD is investigating two overnight shootings that left one person dead and at least three wounded Sunday.

Woman dies in east side shooting

Just before 2 a.m., East District officers were called to the 2700 block of East Michigan Street, near the intersection of Rural Street, on a report of a person shot. Officers found a woman on the sidewalk who appeared to be shot. 

Medics pronounced her dead at the scene.

The Marion County Coroner's Office identified the victim as 35-year-old Sabrina Travis.

IMPD homicide detectives responded to the scene to begin an investigation. On Oct. 5, police announced that 20-year-old Ronnie Smith had been arrested for his alleged involvement in the homicide.

Police said Smith was located "thanks to assistance from the community, real-time information from the Incident Analysis Center (license plate readers, public safety cameras, and other technology), and district officers’ knowledge of their beats." 

Smith was taken into custody without further incident and arrested for reckless homicide and criminal recklessness. 

The Marion County Prosecutor's Office will make the final charging decision in the case.

Anyone with information on the incident can contact Detective Christopher Higgins at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or e-mail him at Christopher.Higgins@indy.gov.
