Bloomington Police investigating shooting at Kinser Flats Apartments that left one man dead

BLOOMINGTON – The Bloomington Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred in the 1600 block of North Kinser Pike at Kinser Flat Apartments that left one man dead.

On Wednesday, July 27th approximately 4:50 a.m., officers responded to Kinser Flats Apartments in reference to a 911 call reporting that they had located a man inside an apartment that they believed to be deceased.

Upon the arrival of officers, a man was located inside a bedroom of a first-floor apartment with an apparent gunshot
wound. Officers immediately initiated life-saving efforts and an ambulance crew arrived shortly thereafter and assumed care of the victim. However, resuscitation efforts were not successful and the man died from his injury.

He was identified as a 28-year-old man that lived in the apartment.

Investigators interviewed numerous individuals throughout the building and reviewed surveillance camera footage. Several apartments were searched and officers located items of evidentiary value in multiple locations. Upon the completion of the interviews, it was determined that a male and the victim had gotten into an argument in the bedroom of the victim’s apartment. During the argument, the male produced a handgun and fired one round, which struck the victim in the head. The victim collapsed to the floor and the male then exited the apartment with the handgun still in his possession. Witnesses stated that the suspect later fled from the building.

Little is known about the male suspect at this time and investigators are attempting to positively identify him.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Bloomington Police Detective Jon Muscato at 812-349-3325.

No further information is available to be released at this time.
