INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Metro Police Department is investigating a deadly shooting in downtown Indianapolis.

Officers were called to the 700 block of East Georgia Street around 11 p.m. Sunday night on reports of a person shot. When they arrived, they found a man and a woman suffering from gunshot wounds.

Dominick Rice, 35, was transported to Methodist Hospital in critical condition, where he was later pronounced dead. The woman was transported to Eskenazi Hospital where she is in stable condition.

According to IMPD, an unknown vehicle pulled into the parking lot where the man and woman were involved in July 4th activities and began shooting at them. The suspect then fled from the scene.

At this time, IMPD says it does not believe this was a random act of violence.

The identities of the shooting victims will be released at a later time.
