INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Detectives have arrested the man they believe committed Indianapolis’ first murder of 2016.

Najee Givens, 26, is accused of shooting and killing Terry Williams, 19, in the 6000 block of Windsor Drive on January 4.

When officers arrived on scene, they found Williams suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. EMS crews pronounced him dead at the scene.
