IMPD Homicide Detectives Make Arrest in Homicide Investigation

INDIANAPOLIS –  On Monday, November 1, 2021, just before 8:00 p.m., an IMPD Southeast District Sergeant was in the 3600 block of S. Keystone Avenue when she heard shots being fired. That officer then located a 17- year-old male who sustained injuries consistent with a gunshot wound(s). Additional Officers responded, aid was rendered to the victim until Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services (IEMS) arrived and transported the victim to Eskenazi Hospital in critical condition. Unfortunately, shortly after arriving at the hospital, the victim was pronounced deceased.

IMPD Homicide Detectives responded to the scene to begin their investigation and spoke with a person of interest. Preliminary information leads investigators to believe this incident involved a disturbance between two known individuals. The Indianapolis-Marion County Forensic Services Agency responded to assist in identifying and collecting potential forensic evidence.  The Marion County Coroner’s Office will be assisting and will determine the exact manner and cause of death. The MCCO will release the name of the decedent once proper next-of-kin notification has been made.

Homicide detectives continued their investigation and were able to arrest an alleged suspect. On November 2, 2021, homicide detectives arrested a 22-year-old adult male for his involvement in this case. The Marion County Prosecutors Office (MCPO) will review the case and determine a final charging decision.
