The coroner’s office has identified the teen as Sadayreon Edwards, 15.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s a juvenile or an adult. Any shooting is one too many,” said IMPD Nightwatch Captain Don Weilhammer. “We need to stop resorting to gun violence to try solve whatever problem that was going on.”

At this time, police say they do not have any information on possible suspects or a motive. They hope the public will assist them and come forward with any information.

Two people on scene were detained, but it’s not clear if they are persons of interest or just witnesses.
