Man Killed in Shooting in Bloomington

BLOOMINGTON - JULY 28, 2022 - The Bloomington Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred in the 1600 block of N Kinser Pike. On July 27th at approximately 4:50 a.m., officers responded to Kinser Flats Apartments in reference to a 911 caller reporting that they had located a man inside an apartment that they believed to be deceased. Upon the arrival of officers, a man was located inside a bedroom of an apartment on the first floor with an apparent gunshot wound.



Officers immediately initiated life-saving efforts and an ambulance crew arrived shortly thereafter and assumed care of the victim. However, resuscitation efforts were not successful, and it was determined that the man was deceased. He was identified as a 28-year-old man that lived in the apartment.

Investigators interviewed numerous individuals throughout the building and reviewed surveillance camera footage. Several apartments were searched, and officers located items of evidentiary value in multiple locations.


Upon the completion of interviews, it was determined that a male suspect and the victim had gotten into an argument in the bedroom of the victim’s apartment. It was reported that during the argument, the suspect produced a handgun and fired one round, which struck the victim in the head. The victim collapsed to the floor and the suspect then exited the apartment with the handgun still in his possession. Witnesses stated that the suspect later fled from the building.

Little more is known about the suspect at this time and investigators are attempting to positively identify him. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Detective Jon Muscato at (812)349-3325.
