INDIANAPOLIS — Police only have a vehicle description to go off of at the moment as they try to figure out who shot a man outside a Chuck E. Cheese on the east side of Indianapolis Sunday evening.

Investigators have still not confirmed who the man was who was shot and killed, but our newsgathering partners at WISH-TV spoke to the grandfather of the man who identified him as Anthony Tinnin, 34.

“To hear that something so tragic would happen at a location where children are primarily present is unbelievable,” said Saddam Tinnin-Bey.

Tinnin-Bey said his grandson was at the Chuck E. Cheese with his wife and young child. He said that Tinnin was in the process of turning his life around after a rough past.

“He wasn’t perfect, but neither was I,” said Tinnin-Bey. “I had to go through some things to get straightened out. He had to go through some things to get himself straightened out. He was probably still going through some things.”

He said he feels the greatest concern for the other kids at the Chuck E. Cheese who had to witness what happened in the parking lot.

If you know anything about who may have shot Tinnin, you’re urged to call IMPD or Crime Stoppers.
