Indianapolis police are investigating a fatal shooting on the Near Northside.
Around 1 p.m. Sunday, police were called to a home in the 3100 block of College Avenue, according to Officer Christopher Wilburn of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
"When officers arrived they immediately did a protective sweep of the exterior and interior of the residence," Wilburn said in a news release. "Officers located an unresponsive unidentified male subject with apparent trauma. Investigators do not believe this individual is the homeowner."
After locating the victim, officers detained a person of interest and transported him to the homicide office for questioning, Wilburn said.
The shooting occurred during an attempted break-in, police said. Three people were trying to enter the home while the homeowner was inside.
Gunfire was exchanged, and one of the people trying to break-in was shot, Wilburn said.
...Later on the Star again refers to the person who was shot while breaking into house as a "victim." They might want to change that as the story is rewritten. If you get shot while breaking into a house, you're not a victim.
