INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says a man died after a shooting Saturday morning on the northeast side.

Officers responded to the AYR Apartments, located in the 6100 block of N Rural Street, around 1 a.m. and found the victim. That is near the intersection of N Keystone Avenue and East 62nd Street.

The man was taken to the hospital in critical condition but later died, according to Lt. Shane Foley.

On Monday, the Marion County Coroner's Office said the victim was identified as Lamar Washington, 32.

Detectives believe the shooting was not a random act.

In an email to residents shared with WRTV, AYR says the shooting happened in a parking lot near the pool and Washington was not a resident.

"Your peace of mind is our top priority ... our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim's friends and family," the email read.

IMPD is asking any residents and business owners in the area to review video footage around the time of the shooting to see if there is video of anyone or any vehicles arriving or leaving the area. 

Anyone with information about this incident should call Detective Connie Pearson at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317.327.3475 or e-mail the detective at . You can also submit tips anonymously to Crime Stoppers by calling 317-262-TIPS.
