Police Searching for Shooting Suspect in Lawrence

A 22-year-old man was found dead in a dumpster with gunshot wounds Wednesday. Police say it is the seventh murder in Lawrence this year.

LAWRENCE, Ind - A suspect is on the run while a 22-year old man was killed in a shooting in Lawrence early Wednesday morning.

Investigators said they don't believe the shooting was random; but, they still consider the suspect dangerous. They're asking for the public's help in tracking down the person responsible. 

Poilce went to the 7900 block of Queensmead Drive at the Canterbury House Apartments shortly before 2:30 a.m. That's just off of 47th and Franklin Road. 

It's where the body of 22-year old Aaron Grice was found behind a dumpster. 

"Another shooting over here. This violence needs to stop," Shervaun Wilson said. 

Wilson knows better than anyone. Her 23-year old son, Dalon Wilson-McIntosh, was murdered six months ago in a double murder. 

"He didn't deserve to die. Innocent bystander, just playing basketball with his brother," she said.

Three people have died in two separate incidents at the Canterbury House Apartments. Police have yet to identify any suspects or make any arrests. 

"Each one is unique in its own right. If we saw a common thread, we'd be addressing that already. Each one stands alone as its own investigation," said Lawrence Police Department's Chief Deputy Gary Woodruff. 

In Grice's shooting, police said by the time they arrived on the scene he was already dead from at least one gunshot wound. There were no witnesses around and nobody has come forward with information. 

"If we can get specific information that can put them on the right path, that can help bring resolution much quicker and help build a strong case," Woodruff said. 

One single tip, police said, could be the difference between a dangerous suspect on the loose or closure for grieving families. 

"Come forward. My son didn't deserve to die and this person that died this morning didn't deserve to die either," Wilson said.

Police said they do not believe that Wednesday's murder is connected to the double murder from June. If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.

Grice's murder was the seventh murder in Lawrence this year.
