According to the news release, police responded to Kinser Flats early Wednesday around 4:50 a.m. based on a 911 report of a man inside an apartment who appeared to be dead.
Police found the victim, who had an apparent gunshot wound, and tried to resuscitate him. Those efforts continued when an ambulance crew arrived. According to the news release, the man was then determined to be deceased.
Police have conducted interviews, reviewed surveillance camera footage, and searched several apartments, which yielded useful evidence, according to the news release.

Police investigators are trying to identify the suspect. Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to contact detective Jon Muscato at (812) 349-3325.
