INDIANAPOLIS — Police are investigating after one man was fatally shot and at least two other people were wounded late Wednesday night on the east side of Indianapolis.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were called around 11 p.m. to several locations to investigate possible people shot, IMPD Lt. Shane Foley said in an email.

A man was found dead with at least one gunshot wound in the 1300 block of North Oxford Street, Foley said. Officers found one person with at least one apparent gunshot wound near 10th Street and North Rural Street. They are stable.

Those two incidents are believed to be connected, Foley said.

Officers were dispatched to Community East Hospital a few minutes later on a report of a walk-in patient who had been shot. He is in stable condition.

Foley said detectives believe all three people were shot in the same incident in the 2800 block of East 13th Street.

None of the victims' identities have been released.

Anyone with information should call the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.
