That car is still in the road and the intersection will be closed for several hours as police investigators gather evidence.

The victim has not yet been identified. There is no information yet on possible suspects.

Indianapolis broke its previous record of criminal homicides in October when it hit 160. 

Of the city’s ongoing violence, Wheeler said, “It’s terrible, and there isn’t a lot of reason behind it, it seems, to any of it.”

“Doesn’t seem like a lot of reason to take another person’s life,” he said of the latest  fatal shooting. “Just don’t understand why all this shooting’s going on and it’s very frustrating for us.”

Anyone with information regarding the incident is encouraged to contact the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477 or online at crimetips.org. Information shared with Crime Stoppers is considered anonymous.
