INDIANAPOLIS (June 12, 2014) – A man has been arrested in connection with a shooting that police said was sparked by a dispute over dogs.

The warrant for Albert Rogers was issued Wednesday. He’s accused of fatally shooting Joshua Tucker in the 1300 block of Edgecombe Avenue on June 6.

Rogers was not aware there was a warrant out for his arrest when he came to the City County Building Thursday to talk to a detective. He was arrested without incident.

Tucker and Rodgers had been in an ongoing argument about their respective pit bulls. Witnesses and investigators said Rogers approached Tucker in his driveway. The two men argued and shots were fired; Tucker was mortally wounded in the back. Rogers drove away in a car with a woman and two children. He later called police. Investigators said Tucker was also armed at the time of the killing.

Police said Rogers had a valid handgun permit. He was initially released.
