Marcus Garvin

INDIANAPOLIS — Police have a man in custody in connection with the death of a woman Friday on the east side of Indianapolis.

Officers were called to the 7400 block of E. 21st Street, east of Shadeland Ave., just after 4:30 a.m. A woman was found unresponsive and pronounced dead at the scene.

Preliminary information led detectives to believe a possible person of interest was still on the scene. A SWAT team had been called to the scene as a precautionary measure. The person of interest, later identified as Marcus Garvin, was located and detained without incident.

Detectives continued to review the evidence before arresting Garvin for his role in the death of the woman. The Marion County Prosecutors Office will review the case and make a final charging decision.

Police ask anyone with additional information to call Detective Mark Howard at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475, or e-mail him at Mark.Howard@indy.gov. Anonymous tips can be submitted to Crime Stoppers by calling 317-262-TIPS (8477).
