INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis family is begging for answers after 24-year-old Shane Spells, a Purdue graduate and postal worker, was gunned down in his own driveway.

“”He was loving, kind, respectful, generous, just all around wonderful child,” Shawn Spells said.

It was apparent by the size of the massive crowd gathered for a vigil just how much Spells was loved.

“I know that If he were here, to see all of this support and all the love that people have for him, he would be so thankful and so grateful,” Theresa Miller said.

The federal employee who had dreams of becoming an entrepreneur was killed Sunday night when he was shot multiple times in front of his home near 56th Street and Kessler Boulevard. Almost a week later, police still have not named a suspect.
