SWAT standoff underway as police close in on suspect in fatal bar shooting
A SWAT standoff is underway on the city’s northeast side as authorities close in on the suspect in a fatal bar shooting early Thursday morning.
Authorities responded to the Value Place motel at 9515 Pendleton Pike at approximately 11:40 a.m., after an officer saw a vehicle matching the description of the suspect’s car.
Police told Fox59 they believe Brian Fegley, 41, is alone and barricading himself in a room.
Fegley is wanted in connection with the shooting death of 33-year-old Elisha McAfee, who was killed at the Free Spirit Lounge inside the Dollar Inn on the city’s northeast side.
According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department report, Fegley is the roommate of McAfee’s mother. The shooting stemmed from an argument, according to McAfee’s wife, who said Fegley shot her husband while they were leaving the bar.
Fox59 will update the story as more information becomes available.
