INDIANAPOLIS — Police have arrested a 17-year-old in connection to the shooting death of 43-year-old Larry W. Cagg that occurred on Sunday afternoon.
According to previous reports, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were dispatched to the 1200 block of Kappes Street on Indy’s near southwest side at around 2:45 p.m. on Sunday. On scene, officers reported finding Cagg in the alley with gunshot wounds.
