INDIANAPOLIS -- Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department didn't get much of a break over Labor Day weekend, as they responded to six different shootings across the city.

A man was shot and killed Saturday in the 2200 block of Bellefontaine Street.

Police say 22-year-old Jakoby Hughes was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene.

Two people were shot Saturday evening during a backyard cookout in the 2800 block of S. Rybolt Ave.

Corey Tibbs, 38, was arrested over the weekend in connection with the shooting. He faces preliminary charges of attempted murder, criminal recklessness with a weapon and possession of a handgun without a license.
 

Later that evening, a man was shot and killed on his motorcycle just feet away from where children played.

The fatal shooting took place near the area of 42nd Street and German Church Road.
