2 dead in 6th Indianapolis shooting since Monday night

This shooting adds to a list of other shootings that occurred during or in the hours that followed a City-County Council meeting regarding funding to fight crime.

INDIANAPOLIS — Two more people were shot in Indianapolis early Tuesday morning, just a couple hours after four people were critically injured in a shooting. 

Around 3 a.m., IMPD responded to a report of two people shot in the 8200 block of Gilmore Road, near Interstate 70 and North Franklin Road, on the city's east side. 

When officers arrived, they found a man and a woman with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds. 

Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police tell 13News that no children were injured in this incident, and there is no threat to the public.

According to a preliminary investigation, detectives believe the incident was domestic-related and are investigating it as a murder-suicide. The man and woman were identified by the coroner's office as 34-year-old Davidtra Henderson and 35-year-old Dorrell Paterson.

"We're going to be getting out of our cars and try to interact with people so that we have a better relationship. We want to have that tight relationship with the community, so they can trust to tell us when things are going on."
