One man dead, two others injured following violent night in Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – It’s been a violent 24 hours in Indianapolis with three separate shootings.

The most recent shooting happened early Monday morning on the city’s near southeast side. Officers were called to the 1600 block of Harlan Street at 1:38 a.m. They found a man dead in front of the house when they arrived. The victim was identified as Roberto Cisneros, 31.

Neighbors told police they heard an argument going on outside then heard around a dozen gunshots. Neighbors we spoke with say they found Cisneros in the driveway and tried to save his life.

“I tried CPR on him and I tried to give him every chance at life that I possibly could and it was not enough,” said a neighbor.

Witnesses say the shooter was armed with a large rifle when he fired off nearly a dozen gunshots. Police are working to find the gunman who took the young father, son, and friend to so many.

“Either they get them or the streets are going to get them and God does not like ugly,” said a witness.

In addition to this shooting, there were two other shootings Sunday evening.

The first shooting occurred around 8 p.m. in the 2900 block of North Gale Street on Indy’s near northeast side. A man was critically injured and transported to Eskenazi Hospital.

IMPD was called to a second shooting in the 1000 block of North Sheffield Avenue on Indy’s near west side. A 24-year-old man suffered a minor injury.

An officer on scene told us people should find other ways to solve arguments.

“Two guys argue and somebody decides to use a gun to solve it instead of just resolving the conflict under, -you know, normal means,” said Captain Robert Troutt.

Police are still searching for suspects in all three shootings.
