Indianapolis police responded to a call on the East side where they found a man who had been fatally shot. Arriving on the scene, officers found a man laying face-down in the middle of the road with a gunshot wound to the chest on North Lasalle Street in the 800 block. The man died from his injuries. The call was made by an individual who found the wounded man, but no witnesses to the crime have yet come forward. The identity of the victim has not yet been released to the public. Police have dispatched homicide investigators to the scene.
Thus far, there are no indications of how the man came to be shot or by whom, though a search is underway for the shooter. The scene has been secured, but very little information is available at this time. More information is expected to be released as the investigation into the incident continues. Anyone with any information about the crime is asked to contact the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
