INDIANAPOLIS — A man was killed and five other people were wounded in a shooting believed to have started with a fight at a birthday party overnight Sunday on the city's northwest side, police say.

Officers responded to the shooting about 3:20 a.m. at an event hall in the 4200 block of West 38th Street, according to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Shane Foley.

When police arrived, they initially found three people wounded. One of the victims, Belansky Fanord, 24, was found dead inside a building.

The other victims are a 29-year-old male, a 37-year-old male, a 31-year-old male, a 33-year-old male and a 21-year-old female.

Police originally said there were five victims but later clarified there was another man who was shot and had injuries believed to be non-life-threatening.

Foley said a vehicle was struck by gunfire but it wasn't clear if anyone was inside at the time. He also said police do not have the name of the business where the shooting happened.

Detectives believe a fight broke out and shots were fired inside and outside the building.

No one has been arrested in connection with the shooting. IMPD said Monday there were no additional details they could release about what led up to the shooting or any information about a suspect.

IMPD urged anyone with more information to contact Detective Christopher Winter at 317-327-3475 or Tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477 or (TIPS) and online.
