INDIANAPOLIS - A 20-year-old college quarterback was killed yesterday, marking the first homicide in Indianapolis in 2011.
Our NBC affiliate WTHR in Indianapolis reported that officers from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) were called to a 'person shot' in the 300 block of West 27th Street about 12:40AM Saturday.
Dominique Corder, 20, was talking to the occupant of a blue Suburban or pick-up truck in front of the address when he was shot in the stomach.
The vehicle, which appeared to be an early 2000 model with damage to the driver's door, then fled the scene.
Corder was transported to Methodist Hospital where he died a short time later. A motive for the shooting has not yet been determined.
WTHR said Corder was a sophomore at Central Lakes College where he was quarterback on the football team. He had returned home to visit with his grandparents over the New Years Holiday and was brutally murdered in front of the home he was raised in. He graduated from Emmerich Manual High School in 2008 where he was an accomplished student athlete.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact IMPD Homicide Branch at 327-3475 or Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS.
