INDIANAPOLIS — Two men were shot and killed early Monday morning on the near north side of Indianapolis, according to police.

IMPD received a call about the shooting around 4:55 a.m. The male victims were found in the 3700 block of N. Meridian Street, about a block south of the Meridian and W. 38th Street intersection.

The men were both found outside of a vehicle in a parking lot. They were both pronounced deceased at the scene. The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the men as 32-year-old Steven Carruthers and 24-year-old William Jaymal Ferrell.

One neighbor said she woke up to the sound of “at least 10” gunshots.

“I don’t know what really happened. It was more so I think probably just gang violence or something like that,” said Lavette Harper. “I really don’t know what happened for real.”

“Going for a gun is the last thing we should be doing. It affects not just one person, it affects an entire community,” said IMPD Sgt. Genae Cook.

IMPD homicide detectives are investigating.
