The shooting happened around 5:45 a.m., in the Quail Run Apartments. Within a minute of the call, Zionsville officers arrived at the scene and found the victim unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Zionsville Police Chief Robert Knox identified the victim as Terrell Scott, 30, of Indianapolis.

"A multi-agency effort is currently being exhausted. We are urging people to come forward if they believe they may have witnessed anything in regards to this morning's shooting including suspicious vehicles or persons leaving the scene," said Knox. 

Investigators say multiple eyewitnesses reported seeing two white vehicles leaving the area during the time of the shooting. one of those vehicles is described as a white Chevy Impala. The second vehicle is described as a white Honda Accord.

"If you're from Zionsville, it's still a small community," Knox said. "The Quail Run Apartments, we're very familiar with, but it's just like any neighborhood. It's no worse or better than a lot of the neighborhoods around here. A lot of good people live here."

There were three homicides in Zionsville in all of 2016:

"Now that we had three last year and one this year, how am I supposed to feel?" Knox said. "I don't like it. I can't put my finger on why this has happened. ... It's a growing community and the world is changing, I don't know."
