Man dead after shooting on Indianapolis’ northeast side

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — A man is dead after a shooting on the northeast side of Indianapolis, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

Just after 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, police were on the scene of a shooting in the 3400 block of East 38th Street when they heard several shots fired.

They responded to an apartment complex in the 4100 block of Edgemere Court and began searching the common areas of the buildings.

IMPD says they found one adult male who had sustained trauma to the body. He was pronounced dead by medics. On Oct. 17, the victim was identified as Devon Gillespe Owens, 21.

At this time, police say they have no reason to believe the two shootings are related, but due to the close proximity of the two scenes, they will investigate the possibility.
