INDIANAPOLIS — Metro police are investigating a shooting in the 7500 block of North Shadeland Avenue that left two men dead and two other people wounded.

It was reported just before 2 a.m. Saturday.

An IMPD spokesperson confirmed that officers found four people with "injuries consistent with gunshot wounds" and that one of them had died at the scene outside of a bar and restaurants in a strip mall just north of 75th Street.

A second man died at the hospital shortly after he arrived there by ambulance.

A third man and a woman were wounded. They were described to be in stable condition by police. All were apparently shot in the parking lot outside of a business they had just left.

The Marion County coroner identified the two men who died as 50-year-old Rodney Willis and 47-year-old Darnell Bell.
