BROWNSBURG — A man is dead after a shooting Monday evening at a shopping center in Brownsburg, according to police.

Brownsburg Police Department officers and emergency personnel were called around 5:25 p.m. to the shopping center near North Northfield Drive and North Green Street on the report of a person shot, Cpl. Chris Nelson said.

They found a man, identified as 20-year-old Emanuel Fonville, of Avon, with at least one apparent gunshot wound when they arrived, Nelson said. He was taken to a local hospital where he later died.

Witnesses told police Fonville and another person were robbed by two people who fled the area in a silver 4-door vehicle after one of them fired a gun at Fonville.

Police said the location of the shooting was chosen by Fonville as a meeting place for a transaction.

Detectives are still investigating and looking for any possible suspects, Nelson said.

Anyone who was in the area or has information about the incident is asked to call police.
