INDIANAPOLIS – Police are investigating after two people were shot on Indy’s northeast side.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to the 4100 block of North Brentwood Drive around 10:40 p.m. Friday night. This took place at the Lexington Park Apartments.

When officers arrived, they found two adult males suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene. On Monday, he was identified as 46-year-old Ronald Morris.

The other was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital in serious but stable condition.

“Another thing that we have to do is consider is when we have conflict we must learn how to resolve conflict resolution collaboratively as a community so people don’t turn to gun violence,” said IMPD Public Information Officer, William Young.

Investigators say they currently don’t have any suspects and no arrests have been made in the case.

“It’s very disturbing to our officers, it’s very disturbing to our community. I’ve even spoke to our administration chiefs and they’re worried,” said Young.

Another fatal shooting took place at the same apartments last Friday night.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or call CRIME STOPPERS of Central Indiana at 317-262-TIPS (8477).

“We want to get things like this solved. We want to make sure that our community is safe. We want to make sure that people know how to resolve conflict resolution without again picking up a handgun and hurting someone,” said Young.
