INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says two men were killed in separate shootings on the city's east side Friday night.

Officers responded to a call of a person shot in the 600 block of North Dearborn Street around 10:30 p.m. That location is a couple blocks from the intersection of Michigan and LaSalle Streets. Shortly after arrival, medics declared the person deceased.

Police tell WRTV two people came home and found the victim.

The Marion County Coroner's Office identified him as Darryl Ransom, Jr., 44.

On June 7, Marion County prosecutors charged David Ice, 32, with murder in Ransom's death.

According to IMPD, preliminary information leads investigators to believe this incident involved a dispute over money for narcotics.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call Detective Steven Gray at 317-327-3475 or tips can be called in anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.

Around three hours prior, police say another man was shot in the 8800 block of Montery Court near 42nd and Post. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition but later died.

The Marion County Coroner's Office later identified that man as Frederick Miles, Jr., 23.

Police at the scene said they are looking for a black SUV that may be connected.

Between 2:45 a.m. and 6 a.m. Saturday, IMPD says three more people were shot. One victim was reported to be in serious condition, one was stable and the third was awake and breathing, according to police.
