Bloomington Police Investigating Murder

(BLOOMINGTON) – The Bloomington Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred at a residence in the 1600 block of North Willis Drive.

One victim died as a result of the shooting.

On Monday, at approximately 8:32 p.m., officers from the Bloomington Police Department responded to the residence after numerous calls of multiple shots fired.

When police arrived they found an unresponsive 26-year-old man on the front porch of the residence with a gunshot wound to his chest, said Bloomington Police Department Captain Ryan Pedigo.

Officers immediately began resuscitation efforts and the man was transported to IU Health Bloomington Hospital by ambulance. The man died on the way to the hospital.

Investigators spoke with several witnesses, some of whom claimed to have been inside the residence at the time of the shooting.

“It is believed that three males had been invited to the residence by the victim,” Captain Pedigo added. “However, once at the residence, the suspects reportedly attempted to rob the victim and multiple gunshots were fired during the course of the robbery.”

The males then fled the area prior to the arrival of officers.

No further information is available at this time and no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Detective Chris Scott at 812-349-3382.
