The shooting happened sometime between 11:30 p.m. on Dec. 11 and 1 a.m. on Dec. 12.

Around 1:30 a.m. on Dec. 12, The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department notified state police about a shooting on the ramp from Washington Street to I-65 in downtown Indianapolis.

A man who had been shot drove himself and his wounded passenger to a local hospital. The passenger, 22-year-old Kevin Gordon Jr., passed away.

The driver’s injuries were not life threatening.

At this time, investigators say they don’t know who fired the shots. They’re asking for information from anyone who was in the area of I-65 and Washington Street in Indianapolis the night of December 11 between 11:30 p.m. into the morning of December 12 at 1:00 a.m. and may have witnessed this incident. 

A second interstate shooting incident occurred on the same day, but police don’t think they’re related.
