IN: Fatal Shooting in Indianapolis was Self Defense
Investigators believe the victim of a fatal shooting on the northeast side Sunday was trying to rob the man who shot him.
A 19-year-old man died in the shooting at the Cottages of Fall Creek Apartments in the 6800 block of East 56th Street, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
"Detectives believe it is a self-defense case and witnesses support that allegation," Sgt. Kendale Adams said in an email Monday.
