INDIANAPOLIS -- A person was shot and killed on Indianapolis' northeast side Sunday morning, prompting a SWAT situation to find the suspect or suspects responsible. 

Just before 11:30 a.m., Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were sent to the 6200 block of E. 44th Place and found an unresponsive man lying in the front yard of a residence, suffering from at least one gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead shortly after IMPD officers arrived.

IMPD said their detectives were able to develop information that led them to a near-by house occupied by individuals that could have knowledge of the shooting. Because of the high possibility that one of the occupants was armed, IMPD deployed multiple SWAT teams.

When those teams arrived, three individuals surrendered without further incident. Police believed a fourth suspect was inside the home, but ultimately determined there was no one else inside the home. 

IMPD is not calling any of the three people who surrendered suspects. 

The victim's identity has not yet been released.
