INDIANAPOLIS — One person is dead and two others were injured during a shooting on Indianapolis' west side Thursday evening.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers responded to the 500 block of Lynn Street just before 7 p.m. after receiving multiple shots fired calls for a possible person shot.

Arriving officers located two men with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds. One man was pronounced dead at the scene. The second man was taken to the hospital, his condition is not known at this time.
