INDIANAPOLIS — A person died Tuesday night after being shot at a downtown hotel a block away from Monument Circle, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says.

Police responded just before 10 p.m. to a report of a person shot at the Sheraton Hotel along Ohio Street.

Officers found a person with a gunshot wound. As they approached the injured person, the person who shot them ran down an alley and officers gave chase.

They later caught the suspected shooting. As that was happening, the victim was taken to the hospital, where they died. Police believe that the shooter was targeting the victim and that it was not a random act.
