Indianapolis, IN – Yesterday afternoon, just after 1:00, Indiana State Police Dispatchers began receiving numerous emergency calls about an incident on I-65 northbound at the 102.2 mile marker, just south of Southport Road. Information was being received about a possible shooting and a vehicle running off the road and into a pond. When first responders arrived they found an adult male lying in the grass unconscious and unresponsive, that man was later pronounced deceased on the scene. It was also determined a vehicle had gone into a pond and sunk near where the deceased man was located. Three Indiana State Police SCUBA Divers happened to be within a couple miles of the crash and immediately responded. Within minutes ISP divers, along with IFD divers were in the water to check the vehicle for occupants. It was determined there was nobody else in the vehicle.

Indiana State Police Detectives, Crime Scene Investigators and Crash Reconstructionists all responded to the scene to conduct an investigation. Just prior to the crash, it was alleged that shots were being fired from inside one vehicle toward the vehicle that was found in the pond. The deceased male had an injury consistent with a gunshot wound, along with injures sustained from being ejected from the vehicle prior to it entering the water. Crime Scene Investigators also located what appear to be bullet holes in the side of the crashed vehicle. 

Late last evening State Police Detectives located the other vehicle believed to be involved in this incident. No arrests have been made at this time.
