Coroner IDs man killed in shooting at Indy mall

By The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — A man fatally shot inside an Indianapolis shopping mall has been identified.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office on Friday identified the man as Trai Terrell, 23.

A spokesman for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says the man was shot near the south side entrance of Castleton Square mall on the city’s northeast side Thursday evening. The incident then moved into the mall parking lot, where police found a man on the ground and several people running from the area.

Terrell was taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Officer Genae Cook says investigators don’t know what led to the shooting. However, it’s believed the shooting was not random and “the individuals involved knew each other.”

Cook said people were detained for questioning, but she didn’t know how many and whether they were considered witnesses or suspects. However, she also said police were not actively looking for a suspect.
