INDIANAPOLIS — One person was killed in a shooting on the west side of Indianapolis Monday evening.

The shooting happened in the 5800 block of Suburban Drive, which is near West 38th Street and Moller Road, around 8:30 p.m. Officers at the scene found a man inside a vehicle who had apparently been shot.

The victim was initially reported to be in critical condition, but medics later pronounced him dead at the scene. He was later identified as 56-year-old Joseph Brownlee. 

No other information about the shooting was immediately available.

The shooting was the third that IMPD officers responded to in a little less than an hour Monday. The others happened on North Harding Street and on Keswick Road.
