(INDIANAPOLIS) - Police have identified a teenager killed in a shooting following a Fourth of July fireworks show in downtown Indianapolis.

Authorities said Friday the shooting victim was 16-year-old Monquize Edwards of Indianapolis.

Police said the shooting happened about 11:30 p.m. Thursday at an intersection two blocks south of Monument Circle. The victim was taken in critical condition to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. No other injuries were reported from the shooting.
