Attempted robbery ends with suspect fatally shot (VIDEO)

Authorities are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred at an Indianapolis apartment complex early Sunday morning, but initial evidence suggests the shooting was an act of self-defense.

Police responded to a call around 3:30 a.m. and when they arrived at the Bavarian Village Apartments, they found a 20-year-old man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The man who fired the fatal shots was still on the scene and told authorities that he shot the man after the man tried to rob him. Few details were given about the crime, and it’s unclear if the suspect was armed as well.

No arrests have been made at this time, and police say the man who pulled the trigger is fully cooperating with authorities.

According to residents, the apartment complex is gated, but the gates are never closed. Chan Brown, who lives at the apartment complex but is now considering a move, said he hopes the gates will be closed now.
