INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (January 29, 2015) – IMPD detectives arrested a 17-year-old and his 52-year-old guardian for a road rage incident in which shots were fired.

Both suspects were brought to IMPD’s North District Headquarters for questioning where they were arrested on formal charges. Detectives believe the motive was traffic disturbance.
The teen was charged with three felonies: Dangerous Possession of a Firearm, Criminal Recklessness, and Attempt Battery by Means of a Deadly Weapon. The guardian is identified as 52-year-old Carol Carey, and she was arrested on a formal charge of Assisting a Criminal, a felony level charge.
