INDIANAPOLIS – Detectives with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department are investigating after a deadly shooting leaves one man dead and another critically injured.
Just after 2:30 p.m., officers were sent to the 4400 blk. of Campbell Avenue reference a person shot. When officers arrived they found a critically wounded victim outside lying in the street suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. EMS personnel arrived and pronounced the victim deceased. The victim has been identified as 30-year-old Charles Turner of Indianapolis. Officers found an injured person who was subsequently identified as the suspect a short distance away at Audubon/Radnor Rd. where he too was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. EMS personnel arrived and immediately transported him to Sidney and Louis Eskenazi Hospital in critical condition.
Detectives believe that shooting erupted over a domestic type disturbance. This marks the second type domestic type disturbance IMPD has responded to today. IMPD wants to ensure that all residents know of the available resources should they find themselves in a domestic type environment.
“An unfortunate fact is that most domestic violence incidents are never reported”, said Kelly McBride Executive Director of the Domestic Violence Network. “Local law enforcement has a number of helpful tools to initiate effective and meaningful help services. Call Connect to Help at 211 to be connected to an advocate who can assist with safety planning or alternatively 9-1-1 if it’s an emergency.”
It is expected that the suspect will face arrest, but currently, the investigation is still developing and no preliminary charges have been made available.
