INDIANAPOLIS—Indianapolis police are investigating the shooting deaths of two people on the city's east side.

Officers were called to a house in the 2400 block of North Rural Street at about 4 p.m., Tuesday.

Inside, they found two adults who had been shot to death, according to a public information officer for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
