INDIANAPOLIS — IMPD is investigating after a person was killed in a shooting in a parking lot on the east side of Indianapolis Sunday.
Police responded to a report of a person shot in the 3700 block of North Mitthoeffer Road, which is just south of 38th Street, around 7 p.m.
When officers arrived, they located a man in his early 30s who had been shot. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition and later died.
Investigators said the man and two other people were in a car in a supermarket's parking lot when the shooting happened. The other two people suffered minor injuries from shrapnel and glass, police said.
The Marion County Coroner's Office identified the deceased as 34-year-old Emmanuel Terveus.
Police arrested 28-year-old Ernesto Gillot for murder. Investigators believe an argument happened before the shooting.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Detective Jose Torres at the IMPD Aggravated Assault Office at 317-327-3475 or email him at Jose.Torres@indy.gov. Calls can also be made anonymously to Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.
Police said since the shooting happened in a busy shopping area, there are possibly many witnesses and hope some come forward with any information they may have.
The victim was the second person to be killed in that area in 48 hours and the ninth person to be injured in a shooting on Sunday alone.
Another person was killed Friday, just across the street. According to IMPD, a man was killed in the 9900 block of East 38th Street just before 11 p.m. IMPD detectives detained, then arrested 41-year-old Darius Butts for his alleged involvement in the shooting.
IMPD also confirmed eight people were injured in shootings that happened in the overnight hours Sunday.
Five of those people were hurt in the same shooting at an east side apartment complex. IMPD said a suspect was arrested in that shooting.
