INDIANAPOLIS — A woman died and a man who was later arrested was hurt after they were both shot Thursday afternoon on the city's north side, police say.

Investigators believe both people were wounded during a shootout. The man, 19-year-old Lee-Anthony Hubbard, has been named a suspect in the woman's death, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

The deceased victim is 40-year-old Eria Bankhead.

Officers found Bankhead shot first while they were responding to the 3400 block of Grant Avenue just before noon. This is in a residential area near East 34th Street and North Sherman Drive.

Bankhead was taken to the hospital in critical condition but later died.

Afterward, officers were notified of a second person shot at an apartment complex the 2400 block of Martin Luther Lane, which is near the intersection of East 25th Street and Hillside Avenue, approximately two and a half miles away from where the shooting happened.

Police say Hubbard drove to the apartment complex following the shooting. He was later transported to a local hospital. Police described his condition as "stable."

IMPD Sgt. Genae Cook told WRTV that detectives believe everyone involved in the shooting has been accounted for and that they knew each other.

The shooting may have stemmed from a conflict of some kind between those who were involved. Investigators do not believe there is an existing threat to the public.

Hubbard is scheduled to appear before a jury on Jan. 30, 2023.

Anyone with information about this incident should contact Detective Michael Condon at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317.327.3475 or e-mail him at  .
