Suspect in Henry County shooting caught in Fishers; booked on attempted murder charges

FISHERS, Ind. – The suspect in a double shooting in Henry County has been caught in Fishers.

Investigators found James Brandon Swift, 40, at Walmart on 96th Street.

Henry County Prosecutor Joe Bergacs confirmed the information Friday morning. Swift was booked at the Henry County Jail on two counts of attempted murder. He’s being held without bond.

Swift is accused of shooting his estranged wife, 33-year-old Sarah Swift, and her neighbor, 34-year-old Caleb Broad, in Kennard. Both were transported to a hospital in Indianapolis with life-threatening injuries.

The shooting was reported around 5 p.m. Thursday at a home in the 200 block of North Main in Kennard. Both Sarah Swift and Broad suffered multiple gunshot wounds, investigators said.

Broad was shot eight to ten times and was hit in the back of the head, shoulder, back and right hip. He is in serious condition after having surgery and has stabilized. Broad was helping Sarah Swift fix her front door lock when the shooting happened. He told family members that James Swift parked across the street in an alley, made his way around the house and started firing.

According to Broad’s stepfather, James Swift had a “crazy, glazed look on his face” during the incident.

Sarah Swift was also out of surgery and was stable at last check.
