Double shooting on 86th Street in Nora kills 1, injures another


INDIANAPOLIS — A shooting on Indy’s north side left a man dead and another wounded Tuesday evening.

The Indianapolis Metropolis Police Department said officers responded to the Wendy’s located in the 1000 block of East 86th Street around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday on a report of a person shot. When they arrived, they found a man with injuries consistent with a gunshot wound.

The man was transported to the hospital in critical condition where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

Around 8 p.m. a man walked into a different hospital suffering from injuries consistent with a gunshot wound. The IMPD said the two shootings are related. The man was in serious but stable condition.

An initial investigation into the shooting indicates the shooting happened inside a car at a different location and the man jumped out of the passenger side of the car at a Wendy’s location. Police believe the other man drove away from the scene before getting out and eventually making his way to the hospital.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the deceased as 24-year-old Tavon Bickham.

IMPD homicide detectives are speaking with a person of interest in the shooting. Anyone with information about this incident should call the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477
