Three Injured, One Killed in Shooting Outside Church Off Fall Creek Parkway

INDIANAPOLIS — Three people were injured, one person killed in a shooting Thursday afternoon in the parking lot of a church off Fall Creek Parkway on the near-north side, Indianapolis police say.

Sgt. Genae Cook hasn’t said yet who the victims are, but she said initially that two of the men were in bad shape at the hospital and a third man had minor injuries.

Cook said in a later email that one of the men has died.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department was called to the shooting just before 1:30 p.m. Thursday outside the Broadway United Methodist Church, 609 E. 29th St. That’s just off East Fall Creek Parkway North Drive between Central and College avenues.

Sgt. Genae Cook of IMPD says investigators think the shooting happened during a fight about a landscaping job. All three people shot are believed to have brought weapons to the parking lot north of the church, which was simply a meeting spot for the trio.

One person who’d been shot went into the church, and employees inside gave aid to the person, Cook says.

IMPD asked anyone with surveillance footage of the shooting to contact the department.
