INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A man died early Saturday morning after a shooting at a Denny's on the northwest side of Indianapolis, according to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officials.
The victim has been identified as 46-year-old Mario Wilson. Wilson was a retired 22-year veteran of the United States Army.
Police responded to the Denny's located at 8808 N. Michigan St. around 5:45 a.m. to the report of a person shot.
Officers say Wilson was inside of the restaurant with friends when a verbal disagreement began with the suspect, 26-year-old Leonard Bond.
Officers say Bond left the restaurant and attempted to get Wilson to come outside by banging on the window where Wilson was sitting.
Bond began walking back into the Denny's. Wilson met him at the front door, where he was shot by Bond, according to a release.
Bond tried to flee the scene, but restaurant customers stopped him and held him until police arrived. He was arrested and preliminarily charged with murder.
Police dispatchers in Hancock County say two medical helicopters were called to the scene of a crash late Wednesday night.
SWAT members were called to the city's northwest side Wednesday night.
In the wake of tornadoes that ravaged towns like Kokomo, Hoosiers now have another concern.
