INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis man was killed over the weekend in a shooting on Indy’s near northwest side.

Just before 3 a.m. Sunday, IMPD officers were called to the 3600 block of West 30th Street on a report of a person shot.

The victim was found in the parking lot of the Village Liquor at the corner of 30th Street and Lafayette Road.

38-year-old Quincey Ross died after being rushed to the hospital.

Detectives are still investigating exactly what led to the deadly shooting, but witnesses insist a large crowd had gathered in the parking lot when some sort of dispute escalated to gunfire.

“We have nothing further at this time, and we really need the public’s help and assistance to help bring something to this family that’s lost a life,” said IMPD officer Tommy Thompson.

While the liquor store itself was closed at the time of the shooting, neighbors claim a food truck was operating in the parking lot, which attracted the large after-hours gathering.

“It’s sad that a business can be open and cause so much grief,” said neighbor Tiffany Wesseler.  “Someone had to lose their life on race day when there was already enough drama.”

Wesseler, who runs a nearby business, believes the violence could have been avoided if the food truck followed the same rules as every other business in the area.

“If they’re on liquor store property, they should have to follow the same hours as the liquor store, but they don’t,” Wesseler said. “They’re open at two, three, four or five in the morning. And now we have to wake up to someone that lost their life to just stupidity.”

While multiple businesses, including the liquor store, do have surveillance cameras, IMPD officials said they can’t bring justice to the victim’s family on their own.

“We want to remind the public that it takes a partnership with IMPD and the public,” Thompson said. “That collaboration is how we solve so many crimes, and we need them more than ever.”

Police did not have any detailed suspect information to release, and no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information on this incident should call Detective James Hurt at the IMPD Homicide Office at (317) 327-3475 or e-mail him at [email protected]
