Three People Killed in Shooting on Indy’s East Side

INDIANAPOLIS–Three people were killed in a shooting on the east side of Indianapolis Sunday morning.

IMPD said the shooting happened around 3 near Ritter and Massachusetts Ave and all three victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers say there was a large gathering of people near the Grand sports bar, but they are not sure if there was a fight that happened inside before the shooting. 

They believe the shooting is an “isolated incident,” but the did find more than 50 shell casings on the ground at the scene. 

Investigators are trying to figure out how many people and guns were involved.

Shortly after the shooting, there were four other shooting victims who walked into Community Hospital East for treatment. It is unclear whether those victims were involved in the shooting at Ritter and Mass Ave., or if they were victims of a separate incident.

IMPD reopened Massachusetts Avenue by 9:30 a.m.
