INDIANAPOLIS - One person was fatally shot on the city's northeast side in an apparent domestic dispute Monday afternoon, police confirmed.
The shooting was reported just after 12 p.m. in the 8700 block of Gunpowder Drive. RTV6's Chris Proffitt reports that a man confessed to shooting a man allegedly involved in a domestic dispute with his sister.
"Well, it was an unfortunate event. My brother-in-law tried to attack my sister and nephew and I had to defend them," Billy Brantley said. "I live with my sister and I just had my gun on me because I was downtown in an unsafe area … other than that, it is in the safe."
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Sgt. Kendale Adams said a man's body was found with an apparent gunshot wound. Family members identified the victim as Bruce Gunn, a retired chemist at Eli Lilly and Company, who was in his mid-50s.
Family members said that Gunn and his wife Martha had been married for 20 years. They also said police had been called to the home frequently for domestic problems.
The suspected shooter has not yet been arrested but was taken by police for questioning.
