INDIANPOLIS - One man was killed and another was injured in a shooting on the city’s east side Monday afternoon.
The shooting happened on the 400 block of North Denny Street, near Sherman Drive and Michigan Street, just after 4 p.m., dispatchers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.
An IMPD spokesman confirmed one male victim, later identified as 19-year-old Christopher Pippen, was pronounced dead at the scene. The second male victim was taken to Eskenazi Health in serious condition, police said.
Detectives believe the shooting was an isolated incident and not a random act.
Resident William McKellar came to the crime scene with fellow church members.
"There's just a lot of chaos and a lot of anger and the young people in this community don't have a d*** thing to do and it's all about drugs and money and trying to make a fast dollar," McKellar said.
Police said the only way change will happen is if people can figure out other ways to settle disputes.
"Find a different way to resolve conflict, that's the big picture we're looking at and this is something that the community here has to come to grips with," IMPD Officer Chris Wilburn said.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS. Anonymous tips can also be submitted online at crimetips.org or by texting "INDYCS" plus tip information to 274627.
