Just after 2 a.m. on June 25, IMPD officers were called to the 800 block of Broad Ripple Avenue for a call of shots fired.

“I want to acknowledge the senseless tragedy that has fallen upon our community and fallen upon the families who were impacted by this violence. Three lives were lost and one person is still recovering and that’s not lost on any of us who have been working on this case,” said IMPD Chief Kendale Adams.
