Man killed in suspected home invasion

INDIANAPOLIS — A man was killed early Friday in what police say appears to be a home invasion on the near northwest side of Indianapolis.

Police say a report of a person shot in the 900 block of W. 34th Street came in just after 4 a.m. This is across the street from Crown Hill Funeral Home and Cemetery.

Officials said the homeowner shot and killed another man inside the home. The man was pronounced deceased shortly after officers arrived on scene.

According to IMPD, preliminary evidence indicates this was a home invasion or burglary.

IMPD says the homeowner is cooperating with investigators.

It’s unknown if the homeowner and the man who was killed knew each other.
