Teenager charged with Terre Haute murder may be prosecuted as an adult in Indiana



Indianapolis, Indiana – After a man was shot and murdered Friday night at a petrol station on the east side, police are looking into the incident.

Just before midnight, officers were summoned to a petrol station near East 34th Street and North Emerson Avenue, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

Officers discovered a man who had been shot inside a car when they arrived. He passed away after being transferred to a nearby hospital in a severe condition.

The man was reportedly shot as he was inside the parked car next to the gas station, according to the police. Shortly after, the culprit fled the scene and is still at large.

The Indy Ten-Point Coalition’s Rev. Charles Harrison expressed concern about the neighborhood’s rising violent trend.

“In the entire city, that location is the most difficult. There are several hot point regions there because it is so large and spread out, according to Rev. Harrison.

The rising rate of teenage violence, he claimed, is even more alarming.

“This aggression is being praised by the culture itself. Many kids are listening to this stuff, and it’s in the music and the films, the Rev. Harrison added.

Locals just want the violence to stop for the time being.

“They need to do something. They utilize these weapons and consider it to be fun. “Life is not a game,” local resident Antaune Goodrich stated.

Police are of the opinion that a number of witnesses to the incident fled for their safety.
