One Dead, One Injured After Shooting on Near North Side

One man is dead and another injured after a shooting on the city's near north side Monday night.

IMPD officers were called around 10:30 p.m. to the 3000 block of Winthrop Avenue on a report of a person lying in the alley east of Winthrop, possibly shot.  Upon arrival, officers found 42-year-old William Watson and 41-year-old Robert Johnson, Jr. who both had been shot.

Watson was pronounced dead at the scene.  Johnson was taken to Eskenazi Hospital in critical condition.

Worries about job commitments and sliding stock prices are forcing The Indianapolis City-County Council to take some more time to think about a 18.5 million dollar incentive package. This is the second time the multimillion dollar tax break has been put on hold before it gets a full council vote. Angie's List announced that they would ask council for a tax break that would come from a tax increment financing ordinance if they could take over an old Ford assembly plant on a blighted portion on Indianapolis' east side. With the exception of a bright spot in 2013, Angie's List stock prices have slid downward since the company went public, recently hitting an all-time low of $4.59 per share at the end of January. The total number of jobs added as part of the incentive package is still somewhat unclear. As part of the TIF, Angie's List said they would add 13-hundred new jobs for a total of 28-hundred employees by the year 20-19. Indianapolis would then check the books in the form of a company provided semi-annual review of their job goals.
