Man dies after being shot in face

September 28, 2010

A 20-year-old Indianapolis man was shot to death just after 10 p.m. Monday near East 37th Street and Sherman Drive. The victim and a friend were walking along Sherman Drive when a vehicle, described as a silver 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis or Ford Crown Victoria carrying three black men, drove past them and then returned moments later. A thin male with dreadlocks exited the rear of the vehicle and fired shots, hitting the victim in the face. He died at Wishard Hospital about a half-hour later.
