GREENWOOD, Ind. – A 48-year-old man died following a shooting Tuesday night in Greenwood.
According to the Greenwood Police Department, the shooting happened around 8 p.m. in the 1100 block of Westminster Court.
Police said the shooting stemmed from a “fight or disturbance” at Westminster Apartments. A Greenwood resident, identified as 48-year-old Jason Grider, was shot during the incident. Police found him lying in the street; Grider was taken to Eskenazi Hospital were he was pronounced dead.
According to Greenwood police, Grider had been involved in a disturbance with “several males” prior to the shooting. Those individuals ran to the nearby Polo Run apartments.
Detectives questioned two juveniles in connection with Grider’s shooting, police said. The juveniles were later released. The shooting remains under investigation and police are still pursuing leads.
The apartment complex is about a block away from the Greenwood Park Mall, the site of a shooting Sunday in which three people were killed and the gunman was fatally shot by an armed bystander.
Police searched Polo Run Apartments earlier this week in connection with the mall shooting.
