44-year-old man arrested in shooting on Indy's near southeast side

IMPD said the victim was hospitalized after the shooting but later died.

INDIANAPOLIS — Police continue to investigate a shooting that happened on the near southeast side of Indianapolis Sunday afternoon. 

Early Saturday morning, an IMPD spokesperson said 27-year-old Timothy Lewis II had died as a result of injuries sustained in the shooting.

On May 15, officers responded to a report of a person shot around 3:15 p.m. in the 1600 block of Harlan Street, which is near the intersection of East Pleasant Run Parkway North Drive and South Keystone Avenue.

When police arrived, they found Lewis with apparent gunshot injuries. Medics took him to the hospital in critical condition, according to IMPD.

While investigating, police got a description of a possible suspect that fled the scene shortly before they got there. Police found a man, later identified as 44-year-old John May II, who matched the description given to officers, near State and Naomi streets.

Police said May took off running between houses, but he was taken into custody in the 1800 block of Ausbury Street. May was arrested for attempted murder. IMPD said the prosecutor would determine if those charges will be amended after Lewis' death. 

Anyone with information on the incident should contact Detective Brian Lambert at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or email him at Brian.Lambert2@indy.gov.
