GREENWOOD, Ind. — Authorities in Greenwood are responding after a man was shot and killed outside of a local strip mall.

Greenwood Police Department crews were called around 9:20 p.m. Wednesday to a strip mall on E. County Line Road B. near Emerson Avenue for a person shot outside.

Upon arrival, GPD crews found 52-year-old Timothy A. Sannito suffering from a gunshot wound on the ground in the Ale Emporium parking lot. Sannito, GPD said, was alive but unresponsive. He died at a local hospital on Thursday morning.

GPD said that a witness on scene told officers that two men were in an argument in the parking lot when one man pulled out a gun and shot Sannito.

The shooter, GPD said, apparently then drove northbound away from the scene in an SUV.

GPD detectives are now reviewing security footage from the area and interviewing witnesses to try and determine a suspect.

“Obviously, this isn’t an area that is used to getting a heavy amount of crime and violence,” said Greenwood Police Chief James Ison. “So how troubling is it that you know, we can see the parking lots fairly populated? It’s a Wednesday evening. How troubling is it that we have this type of incident occurring here in Greenwood?”

Despite the shooting happening in a public place, police do not believe there is a threat to the public.
