INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 6, 2014)– An arrest has been made in relation to a 2012 shooting death.
Charges have been filed against Dominique Williams, 21, of Indianapolis for his role in the shooting that killed 25 year-old Sierra Bradberry in May of 2012.
Williams has been charged with murder and criminal gang activity.
“Recently received information resulted in the arrest of a fugitive and member of the infamous street gang “Buddah Boyz.” He and others are responsible for taking the life of a young mother and community member. We want to thank our Homicide and Gang detectives and the community for staying steadfast to bring justice and closure to this family.” said Rick Hite, Chief of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. “We are actively seeking the communities help with additional information related to this crime as we seek to hold others accountable for their role in this tragedy”.
Police say they recently received information that aided them in identifying Williams as one of several suspects accused of firing a handgun that untimely led to the death of the victim.
Detectives believe that in May 2012, the victim along with several family members and friends were gathered in the 3200 block of North New Jersey Street for a “celebration of life” gathering. Detectives believe that the suspect, and several others, fired numerous shots into the residence where the celebration of life attendees were attending.
The resulting gunfire struck the victim who was later pronounced dead at Wishard Hospital. Detectives believe that an on-going feud led to the shooting incident.
Detectives believe that additional suspects were involved and urge anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-TIPS (8477). Callers may also text “INDYCS” plus tip information to 274637 (CRIMES).
