TowZone Posted October 23, 2020 Share Posted October 23, 2020 TOPIC FROM 2017: INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- A Saturday night shooting leaves one man dead on the south side, at the Capital Place Apartments. Police on the scene say the victim is a 47-year-old tow truck driver. When they first arrived to the 4000 block of Continental Court, at around 11 p.m., they found the man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The man was lying on the ground next to the tow truck and car meant to be towed. He was pronounced dead at the scene by medics. At this time, police are still trying to determine the circumstances leading up to this incident. "It is unknown at this time whether this incident escalated from the job he was on, or if it’s a totally separate incident that occurred while he was here doing his job," said IMPD Captain Harold Turner. "We don’t know if he was here to tow it because of a pass, if it was a repossession or if it was broken down and they called him here to have it towed." Police are still working on gathering witnesses and looking for suspect information. "This is one where anyone who knows anything, or has seen anybody possibly fleeing from this area or heard anything... it's very important for them to contact us at 262 tips," Turner said. They will not be releasing the victim's identity or the name of the towing company until family has been notified. There was a burglary just up the road on Burkhart Drive, but police say the incidents seem unrelated at this time. RESOURCE LINK Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
