Indianapolis already close to matching 2020 homicide record
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A man was shot and killed early Sunday in Indianapolis, a death that moved the city closer to matching the record number of criminal homicides with two months still left in the year, a newspaper reported.
Police responded to a house about 2 a.m. and found a man dead with gunshot wounds. Ron Gee, a member of Cease Fire Indy, said the group had hoped for 72 hours of peace in the city.
“We’re still out here pushing our message. … We’re still hopeful,” Gee said.
It was the 213th criminal homicide in 2021, two shy of a record set in 2020, the Indianapolis Star reported.
Indianapolis police asked the public to share any information about the latest shooting.
