INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 16, 2016) — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating two separate but related shootings on the south side.

The first shooting happened in the 2900 block of Carson Drive shortly after 10 a.m. Saturday.  When officers arrived, they found Daryle Hare, 37, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to Sidney and Lois Eskenazi in critical but stable condition.

Moments later, officers were sent to he 4600 block of Southport Crossing Drive in reference to a second person shot.   When officers arrived to the scene, they found Sarah McKinney, 23, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the kitchen area of the Marriott Hotel.  She was also rushed to Sidney and Lois Eskenazi in critical but stable condition.

Detectives identified the shooting suspect as Paul Thompson, 38, walked into the Marriott Hotel and found the female victim in the kitchen area on the first floor and shot her multiple times. Police say Thompson then fled the hotel and went to the second location where the suspect shot the male victim multiple times.

Detectives believe the two shootings are related and that both victims were targeted. The suspect and McKinney were in the process of breaking-up and have two children together and McKinney had recently obtained an order of protection, protecting her against Thompson.

Thompson and the two victims worked at the hotel, but on different shifts. There were no other reported injuries as a result of this shooting.

Thompson was captured in Joliet, Illinois without incident. He has an outstanding warrant from Marion County for intimidation. The suspect will be held in Joliet and extradited back to the Indianapolis in the coming days.
