INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the death of a person found inside a car after a crash early Wednesday on the northeast side as a homicide.

Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to a report of a personal injury crash around 4 a.m. in the 3900 block of North Keystone Avenue.

Police found one person unresponsive inside the vehicle, which crashed through a fence along the southbound lanes of Keystone Avenue. Medics pronounced the person dead at the scene.

IMPD Officer Samone Burris said the victim had “undisclosed trauma not consistent with a traffic accident.” The Marion County Coroner's Office said on Thursday 32-year-old James Hunter died of at least one gunshot wound and the manner of death was a homicide.

Homicide detectives were called to the scene to investigate.
