INDIANAPOLIS - Detectives are piecing together the crime scene after police found a man shot to death in a stolen car early Tuesday morning on the northwest side of Indianapolis.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) said just before 1:30 a.m., officers were sent to the 4600 block of Abington Way (see map below) after someone called 911 reporting 10-15 gunshots in the area.
When police arrived, they said they found a car parked with its parking lights on and bullet casings on the ground around it. They found a man dead sitting in the driver's seat, shot several times.
That man was identified Tuesday morning as Cortez Moton, 19, of Indianapolis.
Detectives believe the shooter fired from outside the window of the car, because there were bullet holes through the window.
IMPD said the car appears to have been stolen out of Hamilton County. Detectives said they don't believe this to be a random shooting.
Neighbors told investigators they saw a car speed away from the scene of the shooting, but police are not sure if that was a person involved with the homicide, or just someone who was scared.
