INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Metro Police are investigating the shooting death of a woman Saturday morning in a north side apartment complex.

Around 7:45 a.m. Saturday, officers found a woman, believed to be in her 60s, shot in an apartment on Boulder Drive. That's between Harcourt Road and Township Line Road south of 79th Street.

According to IMPD Sgt. Shane Foley, she was taken to nearby St. Vincent Hospital, where she died.

Police arrest 63-year-old Alvin Perkins on preliminary murder charges. Detectives say this was a domestic incident, and not a random act of violence.
