INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.—The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a murder attempted suicide on Indianapolis’ south side Tuesday afternoon.

IMPD officers were dispatched to the 5800 block of South Madison Avenue on the report of a person shot just after 3 p.m. When officers arrived they found a 89-year-old man with suspected gunshot wound to the head. EMS personnel were notified and pronounced the subject deceased. In close proximity a second victim, 71, was located also suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the face.

It appeared the two men may have orchestrated the crime together. A suicide note was found at the scene.

“We don’t know who wrote the note but it does appear both of the individuals were corroborating with each other and planned the whole thing,” said Officer Christoper Wilburn of IMPD. “The individual left behind notes in the effect of the pain and suffering they wanted to end. They wanted to do it in a very public place.”

GARY, Ind. (STMW) — A Miller, Ind. man scheduled for trial Jan. 13 on burglary, escape and other charges has been arrested on murder and criminal recklessness charges.

Jesse J. King, 20, shot Tramell Harper, 24, outside the victim’s mother’s St. Johns Homes apartment Dec. 27, police said. King is a resident of Miller Village apartments on County Line Road.

Harper’s girlfriend was walking with him about 8:40 p.m. when they went to the gas station to buy food. As they returned, they saw a man standing near a tan SUV. Harper spoke to another man, who then entered the SUV, and Harper and his girlfriend resumed walking through the apartment complex in the 2100 block of Georgia Street. Harper told her that the second man in the SUV was someone “he had gotten into it with last summer,” the probable cause affidavit states.

The girlfriend told Detective James Bond that she and Harper heard shots and Harper pushed her out of the line of fire, then started shooting at the second man from the SUV, the affidavit states.
Harper was shot in the chest and died on the scene. His girlfriend was not injured. Harper is the father of her young daughter, the affidavit states.
