INDIANAPOLIS — One person is dead after a shooting on the northeast side of Indianapolis Friday night.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers responded to the 2900 block of Station Street on a report of a person shot shortly before 9:10 p.m.

First responders found a man suffering from gunshot wounds inside a "candy store."

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say they're unsure what happened inside the business, but add when officers arrived there was several people outside.

This death marks Indianapolis's 100th homicide of 2023.

“It’s unfortunate whenever a life is lost, and it’s hard to believe that we’re already at 100," IMPD Captain Don Wilhammer said. "The thing that I would stress on this is that it’s not even really that hot out. People need to take a breath, calm down and not resort to violence to solve their problems.”

On Monday, the Marion County Coroner's Office identified the man shot as 35-year-old Justin Burrell.

Captain Wilhammer said no one has come forward in this case.

Police are urging the public to say something if they know anything about this case.
