INDIANAPOLIS - One man is dead and the other in the hospital after a shooting Monday night on the city's north side. Police believe the violent exchange may have been sparked by an illegal gambling dispute.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) said officers were called to the 3000 block of North Winthrop Avenue (see map below) around 10:30 p.m. to respond to the shooting.
Police said one man was pronounced dead at the scene. That man was identified Tuesday morning as William Watson, 42.
Another man was taken to Eskenazi Health in critical condition. That man was identified as Robert Johnson, Jr., 41.
IMPD detectives believe the men could have been involved in an illegal gambling game before the shooting. A large sum of money was discovered at the scene of the shooting.
"It's mind-boggling at this point. We believe as a police department we are doing everything we can. We are trying to develop innovative projects. We hope to make some announcements about our summer plans and things we are trying to target," IMPD spokesman Kendale Adams said.
Investigators said they have not identified a shooter or any witnesses, and urge anyone with information to call police.
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.
