INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. ( Sept. 5, 2014) -- It took officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department less than 24 hours to find the car of a man police have been searching for since Saturday night.

Suspect Daniel Brown

Suspect Daniel Brown

Daniel Brown, 42, is wanted in connection with a carjacking and the shootings of three people.

Sunday, officers found the 2009 Nissan Altima Brown fled in at Ryder Transportation Services in the 2700 block of South Holt Road. Now, investigators think Brown may be in a stolen truck.

Police believe Brown, who was formerly employed at the truck yard, may have stolen another vehicle from there.

Surveillance video obtained by FOX59 News shows one shooting victim, 30-year-old Amanda Fugate, entering a room of the Gateway Motel on Lafayette Road shortly before 6:30 p.m.

Less than four minutes later, Brown arrives in his Nissan Altima, steps up to the doorway of room 119 and within seconds, Fugate is spotted wounded at the door as Brown drives away.

Investigators said just half an hour earlier, Brown shot a woman while they were riding in a SUV in the 6000 block of West 71st Street following a dispute. Police said he then carjacked a vehicle form a nearby motel, drove to his house in the 1700 block of West 72nd Place, where he retrieved his dog and headed southbound on Lafayette Road.

Fugate was wounded and minutes Brown allegedly shot another acquaintance, Zachary Brooks, 25, at Eagledale Plaza, about a mile north of the Gateway Motel.

"I ask her, 'You know him? You know the guy who shot?'" said motel owner Sam Patel. "She just told me, 'I know him, I know him.'"

A bullet broke the window of room 119, traveled across the parking lot, passed through the door to room 105, glanced off a wall and shattered the glass of a framed print on the wall.

"That's why I told her, 'You no more live here because I don't want the problem on my property again,'" said Patel.

If you know the whereabouts of Daniel Brown, call Crimestoppers at (317) 262-TIPS.
