Shelbyville teen murdered in business parking lot

Shelbyville police said the 14-year-old boy was shot in the parking lot of Duck River Laundry just after 9 p.m. He has been identified as Israel Diego Pascual, a freshman at Shelbyville Central High School.

A teenager was killed outside a Shelbyville laundromat on Monday night.

“Our best guess is this is a case of mistaken identity and this innocent victim was targeted,” SPD Deputy Chief Brian Crews said.

The gunman burst from the dark as the family prepared to leave the laundry, investigators said.

“The family went to the laundromat to do their laundry in two separate vehicles,” Crews said. “They finished their laundry and went to their vehicles.

“The gunman came from the area of Little Caesar’s Pizza and opened fire on the vehicle.”

Pascual was in the front seat of a Nissan Altima driven by his 22-year-old brother, Crews said.

Several shots from a handgun struck Pascual including a fatal wound to the head, according to Crews. Detectives have recovered evidence from the scene.

Pascual’s brother, who was in the driver’s seat, was uninjured. “We don’t believe the students and school are in any danger. Grief counseling will be offered at the school,” Crews said.

Neither the victim nor his brother have police records, Crews said. “This young man was within his family doing laundry at 9 o’clock at night,” compared to other types of activities a youth could be involved in, Crews said. “This was a senseless act.”
