INDIANAPOLIS — After a standoff that lasted nearly six hours, a murder suspect was taken to a local hospital in critical condition suffering from a self-inflicted gun shot wound to the head.
Police cornered 41-year-old Brian Fegley at the Value Place Hotel, Thursday afternoon. Earlier that morning, Fegley was linked to a shooting near 82nd and Shadeland Avenue that killed Eli McAfee.
McAfee’s mother told police her roommate Fegley was the shooter.
McAfee’s wife wrote on Facebook, “Please pray for his spirit and his family… god bless and remember life can be short.”
His brother added, “I loved that man more than any other living person. And he’s gone.
I hope the vibrant spirit he had will be dispersed back into nature and that you might find some beauty in this world. He had a lot of it; it shouldn’t be hard.”
Charges have not been filed in the fatal shooting yet.
