INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Police are searching for a suspect after one person was killed and one person was seriously wounded in a double shooting on the far east side of Indianapolis.

Officers were called to the 4000 block of Crabtree Court, near 42nd Street and German Church Road, on a report of two people shot around 12:20 a.m.

They found a female inside a vehicle, dead from a gunshot wound. They also found a male nearby suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to Eskenazi Hospital in serious condition.

Police say the vehicle was found down the block from where they believe the shootings occurred. They are currently searching for a suspect, but they have not released a suspect description at this time.

If the shooting is ruled a homicide, IMPD says it will bring the count to 80 for this year, which is on track to be a record-setting number.
