One person was killed and a student was injured in a shooting near the Indiana University campus on Thursday.
The shooting happened at an apartment complex around 9:15 p.m. in the 2000 block of N Walnut Street, just west of the football stadium. A majority of people who live in the apartments are students.
When police arrived they found one person suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the chest area and one person had been shot in the shoulder.
Both victims were transported to IU Health Bloomington Hospital. Once at the hospital, the victim with multiple gunshot wounds, identified as 21-year-old Skylar Maupin of Seymour, died as a result of his injuries.
The surviving victim was able to provide identifying information about one of the suspects to the first arriving officers.
Investigators believed that the suspects fled from the scene in a red car and were most likely heading north. Counties north of Monroe County were alerted of the suspect vehicle description, and a short time later, a deputy with the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office observed a vehicle that matched the description traveling northbound on I-69.
After a brief search of the area by other deputies with the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office, the suspect vehicle was located backed into a private driveway near the intersection of Josephine Street and Dickson Street in Martinsville.
Two suspects were taken into custody. The deputies noted that a handgun could be seen in plain view on the floorboard of the suspect vehicle.
