INDIANAPOLIS — A person was killed Tuesday in a shooting on the east side of Indianapolis, IMPD said.
The shooting happened at around 6 p.m. near the intersection of Orion Avenue and Bancroft Street, which is just northwest of the intersection of Emerson Avenue and Brookville Road.
Police arrived to find an adult male who had been shot. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition but later died.
During the investigation, officers determined a "person of interest" in the case, an adult male, was inside a nearby house. Officers surrounded the property and a SWAT team was called to assist, but he surrendered to police without incident, according to IMPD.
