West side crash, shooting leaves one dead, two injured

INDIANAPOLIS - Police said one person was taken to the hospital in critical condition and later died after being shot early Saturday morning on the west side of Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) said at roughly 3 a.m. there was a shooting in the 4200 block of Moller Road. Officers nearby heard the shots, and said when they arrived, one car was upside down nearby and three people were outside of it.

One person was found lying several feet outside of the car and had been shot, investigators confirmed.

Police identified the victim as 19-year-old Kenneth Mills-Tucker, of Indianapolis. Mills-Tucker was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital with critical wounds, where he was later pronounced dead.

Investigators said two other men were found near the scene and were also taken to Wishard, with complaint of pain only. IMPD said a fourth (uninjured) person was found moments later near the original crime scene.

IMPD said a vehicle was seen leaving the scene of the shooting. Investigators also said they believe the shooting may have happened in the parking lot of a nearby apartment complex, Three Fountains West (located at 5501 W. 43rd St.), where officers said they found several shell casings.

The car that was found flipped on its top hit a utility pole, which has since been repaired by Indianapolis Power and Light, police said.

Moller Road between Pike Plaza and 46th Street was closed for the investigation until just before 7:45 a.m., when it was opened back up to traffic.

Anyone with information on this incident is urged to call police at 911. Tips may also be reported anonymously via Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477 or via text. Just text "INDYCS" plus tip information to 274627.
