INDIANAPOLIS – A man ended up in the hospital following a shooting on the near northeast side that police described as a “family-related” incident.
Indianapolis Metropolitan police announced the arrest of 29-year-old Dareece Garvin on preliminary charges of criminal recklessness, unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, aggravated battery and operating a motor vehicle without ever receiving a license.
Officers were dispatched around 1:50 a.m. Friday to the 3000 block of Ralston Avenue, where they found a man had been shot.
“The adult male was in stable condition,” said Capt. Don Weilhammer with IMPD. “He was transported to Methodist Hospital by Indianapolis EMS, and he is still in stable condition at the hospital at this time.”
Weilhammer described the shooting as “family-related.”
“It’s family-related, so it was very targeted against this individual and like I said, it’s family-related,” Weilhammer said.
After saying they had a suspect in mind, police announced Garvin’s arrest. The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will make a final charging decision.
The shooting remains under investigation. IMPD urged anyone with additional information to contact Det. Ronald Clayton at 317-327-3475 or Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS (8477).
