East side double shooting leaves one man dead, one woman injured


INDIANAPOLIS – A double shooting has left one man dead and one woman in stable condition on the city’s East side.

According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, officers responded to reports of a person shot in the 2100 block of Lake Terrace West Drive at the Lakeview Terrace Apartments.

IMPD said when officers arrived at the scene, they found an adult male and an adult female inside a vehicle who were suffering from gunshot wounds.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, while the woman was transported to an area hospital in stable condition.

This latest homicide investigation comes just four months after yet another double shooting took place at Lakeview Terrace Apartments earlier this year.

Back on June 28, two people were found dead inside of a car in the 9800 block of Woodsmall Drive – just a five minute walk from the latest double shooting.

IMPD said police were originally sent to Woodsmall Drive for a report of a one-vehicle crash. When officers arrived, police said the car had hit a pole and an officer saw two people dead inside with a gun in the passenger’s lap.

Both the driver and passenger had been shot and were declared dead at the scene. The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified them as 18-year-old Eric Colvin and 22-year-old Justice Wills.

Authorities are still searching for a suspect in Saturday’s double shooting. Anyone with information is encouraged to call IMPD detectives at 317-327-3475. To remain anonymous and possibly win a cash reward, call Crimestoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
