MUNCIE — A man is dead and a woman was injured in a shooting Thursday morning just west of Downtown Muncie.

Muncie Police Department officers were called around 4:45 a.m. to the 400 block of West Howard Street on the report of a shooting, MPD Deputy Chief Melissa Pease said.

When they arrived, they found a 19-year-old woman on the front porch who had been shot and a 29-year-old man upstairs who was also shot, Pease said. The man later died and the woman is in stable condition.
