IMPD is investigating a Westside shooting where they believe a man shot a woman before killing himself.
Police received a call about the incident around 12:20 a.m. this morning at a house in the 1300 block of South Worth Avenue. They found 43 year old Jonathan Ogden and 40 year old Veronica Bailey both of Indianapolis, in the front yard with gunshot wounds.
The two, who were not married but had been living together for more than 20 years, died at the home.
Police believe that Ogden shot Bailey and then himself after the two had a fight.
Police also believe the pair had been dead for about two hours before they were found.
Ogden was arrested before on May 25 on suspicion of domestic battery.
Investigators are interviewing witnesses. The Marion County Coroner’s Office is conducting autopsies.
