Boy, 16, arrested in shooting near Greenwood that killed 15-year-old, hurt 19-year-old

GREENWOOD, Ind. (WISH) — A 16-year-old boy was arrested Friday night in a shooting that killed a 15-year-old and injured a man.

Marcus Salatin, of Greenwood, faces preliminary charges of murder and aggravated battery.

The shooting happened around 4:45 p.m. Friday in the Fox Berry Trace subdivision, near Smith Valley Road and County Road 400 West. Johnson County Sheriff’s Office received several reports of “shots fired” and responded to the scene.

Deputies arrived to find people in a car who said that a person named Marcus had shot them. The driver and back seat passenger provided a description of where they thought he lived, and deputies found him and called for him to exit the residence. He complied and was taken into custody without incident, Johnson County Sheriff Duane Burgess said by email.

Kashius Davis, 15, of Bargersville, was the front passenger of the car and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 19-year-old man who was in the back of the car was taken to Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital, where his condition was not life-threatening, Burgess said.

The juvenile male driver was not injured in the incident, Burgess said.

The sheriff’s office asks that anyone who witnessed the shooting or has some home surveillance of the shooting call Maj. Damian Katt at 317-346-4604.
