Police arrested Juwan Ellis in the death of Robert Young, 18, and Deonte Butler, 17.  Ellis was taken into custody and charged with two counts of murder, one count of robbery and one count of carrying a handgun without a license.

On November 20, 2014, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) officers were dispatched to the 2800 block of Freeman Drive on a report of shots fired.

Officers located the bodies of Young and Butler near a black Oldsmobile Bravada, with apparent  gunshot wounds.  Police say Ellis shot the victims during a dispute which led to a robbery.
