INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Police want to question a man in connection with a fatal shooting from earlier this month.

Indianapolis Metropolitan police are looking for Robert Drake, 26, Indianapolis, and say they want to question him about the Sept. 6 shooting. He’s considered a person of interest in the investigation.

Around 9 p.m. on Sept. 6, IMPD officers were dispatched to the 1100 block of North Kealing Avenue in response to a shooting. A man was found dead at the scene.

Witnesses told police during the investigation that two men got into an argument. One man was shot and killed during the incident; witnesses said the shooting suspect left the area in a four-door silver vehicle.

Earlier that day, police investigated another homicide in the 1000 block of North Kealing. They don’t believe the two shootings are related.

Anyone with information about Drake’s whereabouts should call 911 or contact Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at (317) 262-8477 (TIPS).
