INDIANAPOLIS — A call about a person shot Monday night led Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) to find two teenagers dead at an east side park.
Officers were called out to Dubarry Park on East 35th Street (near Post Road and 38th Street) around 9:30 p.m. There they found the two teenage victims: 15-year-old Isaiah Jackson and 14-year-old Da’Vonta White. The two teenage boys were declared dead at the scene.
The victim’s family says the pair were dropped off at the park by a family friend before the deadly shooting.
“Being a parent, I can’t imagine the heartache the parents are feeling at the loss of children under the age of 16,” said IMPD Major Kerry Buckner.
During the investigation, IMPD used drones to canvas the park and make sure no one else was injured.
The plan is to go to the park Tuesday to knock on door of nearby houses.
“The park is part of a neighborhood. So anyone who has information please call crime stoppers or IMPD homicide, stop an officer on the road, we’ll take the information, anything you can give.”
Anyone with information about this incident should contact Detective Erika Jones at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317.327.3475 or e-mail him at Gary.Smith@indy.gov.
