INDIANAPOLIS – The identities of three men who were shot and killed in an apartment complex on the city’s north side Sunday evening have been released.

Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were called to the 7800 block of Somerset Bay around 6 p.m. Sunday on reports of a person shot. 

Police found three men with gunshot wounds inside an apartment. All three were pronounced dead on the scene.

They have been identified as Dominique Miller, 25, Jordan Wright, 25, and Justin Crowder, 19.

"I hope they find a way to make this kinda stuff like this stop. It's not just because of Justin dying. Dominique and Jordan didn't deserve this either. Nobody deserves to die like this especially at a young age," said Shevy Price, friend of Justin Crowder.

Witnesses report seeing a couple individuals get into a vehicle and flee the area following the shootings.

Officers say they believe this specific apartment was targeted and no one else in the complex is in danger.

"We do believe this was an isolated incident and we do believe this apartment building was targeted for a specific reason," said Capt. Harold Turner, IMPD.
