One man is dead, another is in critical condition, and a woman hospitalized in serious condition after a triple-shooting just east of downtown.

Police were called to a home in the 800 Block of Madison Street at 9:12 Thursday night.

Authorities found 40 year-old Ricky Pelmear dead inside the home. 

Police believe a disturbance took place inside the house, which led to shots being fired. The other two victims were able to flee the area and were found outside by police. 

They have been identified as 41 year-old Jason Sandy and 33 year-old Rachel Burtz. They were taken to a hospital in critical and serious conditions. 

Police say all three victims were shot inside the house.

Initial information indicated to officers a suspect may have been hiding inside a house in the area. In response, police blocked off the 800 block of Madison Street between Francis and Harmar Streets.

Police with SWAT gear determined the location to be safe, allowing crime scene investigators to enter the scene. 

Police are asking any witnesses to provide information on possible suspects by calling Crime Stoppers at (260) 436-7867.
