INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis police on Monday made an arrest in a shooting that left one man dead and two others injured early Saturday morning.
Marcus Washington, 38, is facing a murder charge for his alleged involvement in the death of David Woodard, who was pronounced deceased at the scene. The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will review this case and make a decision on final charges.
Early Saturday, IMPD responded to the 500 block of East Michigan Street on report of a person shot. When officers arrived on scene, they located three men with injuries consistent with gun shot wounds.
The two men who survived were transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.
One neighbor we talked to said this is not uncommon in the neighborhood. She said most nights she hears gunshots.
“Just gunshots and people fighting and you can’t leave nothing sitting out on the front porch or side of your house because they’ll steal it,” said Deborah Giles, she lives down the street from where the shooting happened.
Giles said she doesn’t feel safe walking around her neighborhood or even being out on her front porch after dark.
“I move my couch around because my son keeps saying there could be bullets coming through that window,” she said.
Giles said she wishes the community would do more to keep the neighborhood safe.
“I think the community should help, when somebody gets shot they just turn their back to it,” Giles said. “They don’t want to give no answers.”
Now, she’s hoping police will be able to figure out what happened down her street early Saturday morning.
“If they see something they should call it in because it protects the other person too,” she said.
