INDIANAPOLIS — Another person has been shot and killed on the east side of Indianapolis in what has been a violent Labor Day in the city.

The victim was later identified as 56-year-old Daniel Brown.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is speaking with a person of interest. Police do not believe there is an ongoing threat to the public. An investigation into the shooting is ongoing.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Eric Amos at the IMPD Homicide Office by calling 317-327-3475 or e-mailing him at

This marks the fourth person killed in a shooting since 3 p.m.

A woman died after being shot at Windsor Village Park on the east side of Indianapolis. Minutes later, police were called to a deadly shooting downtown. A teenager was also killed in a shooting shortly after 4 p.m. on Indianapolis’ near east side.

Monday evening, a spokesperson for Mayor Joe Hogsett released the following statement on his behalf:

“The gun violence experienced by our community today is heartbreaking and unacceptable. That’s why Mayor Hogsett has introduced a $150-million anti-violence plan that will invest in our law enforcement officers, giving them the tools and resources they need to hold perpetrators of violence responsible, while also directing unprecedented resources into addressing the root causes of violent crime and the community-based groups working to stop this destructive cycle. It will take all of us to address the scourge of gun violence and create a safer community for all who call Indianapolis home.”
