INDIANAPOLIS — A shooting on the Indianapolis east side late Thursday left a man dead.

It was the second fatal shooting in about seven hours in the city, during a very violent first two months of the year.

A police official at 38th Street and Arlington Avenue said a 30-year-old man was shot somewhere else and managed to drive himself to a gas station at the intersection.

He was rushed to an Indianapolis hospital, but did not survive.

THe Marion County Coroner identified the man as Darrell Stennis.

There has not been an arrest. Detectives are talking to people who may have information about what happened.

This was the second serious shooting in less than seven hours in Indianapolis. A man was shot and killed in a Circle Centre Mall parking garage downtown Thursday afternoon. Police said the victim and assailant knew each other.
