INDIANAPOLIS - A gunshot victim was rushed to the hospital Wednesday morning after an incident on the east side of Indianapolis, police said. That person was pronounced dead on arrival.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) confirmed at roughly 3:30 a.m., someone called to report shots fired in the area of 16th Street and Tacoma Avenue (see map below).
It wasn't until later that police said officers discovered someone had been hit.
Police didn't find the victim on the scene. We now know that's because someone else drove the victim to IU-Health Methodist.
Investigators said the man, 36 years old, was shot a block south of where officers had been looking, in the 2500 block of Brookside Drive.
The victim was later identified as David Dullen of Indianapolis.
