INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– One man is dead following a shooting Thursday afternoon at a downtown parking garage in Indianapolis.
Officers responded to 48 West Maryland Street, west of Pennsylvania Street, sometime before 3 p.m.
The victim was found in critical condition and later died, police say.
Police did not have any information on a motive for the shooting, but officers believe it was an isolated incident between two people.
Homicides in downtown are rare, but police add that no place is immune to violence.
“We believe this to be a targeted incident and that can happen anywhere. We encourage anyone with information or assistance to give us a call at the homicide office,” said IMPD Sgt. Grace Sibley.
People visiting the area say the shooting caught them off guard.
“I don’t like to be in parking garages by myself,” explains Christine Hudson who lives nearby, “but, I’ve never felt unsafe in a parking garage during the daytime”
“It’s a nice city similar to Denver,” says Ian Brown who is here for a conference, “I kind of felt at home here until that shooting in the garage.”
