INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating after two people died and another was wounded in a shooting on the city’s northeast side.

The IMPD said the shooting happened in the 3800 block of Mitthoefer Road shortly after 8 p.m. Friday. When officers arrived, they found two victims with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds.

Both of the victims were transported to area hospitals where they were later pronounced dead.
