INDIANAPOLIS - A man was shot and killed on Indianapolis' east side Monday night, marking the city's first homicide of 2016.

Police were called shortly after 11 p.m. to an apartment complex in the 6000 block of Windsor Drive near East 21st and North Arlington.

There they found 19-year-old Terry Williams with a gunshot wound. Williams was laying just inside the entrance of the common area at the apartment complex. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Williams had recently moved to Indianapolis from Jacksonville, Florida to live with his brother, Jermaine Davis.

Davis was at work Monday night when his girlfriend called him to tell him the news.

"He was coming up here to stay with me for just the winter and the spring, and he was having trouble where he was staying, so I brought him here to stay with me," Davis said. "I never knew he would get killed."

No suspects have been identified in the slaying, but police have conducted several interviews.
