IMPD: 2 shot, 1 battered after shooting on near southeast side

UPDATE: The barricaded suspect, identified by IMPD as 31-year-old Damien Boyce, pulled out a gun during an argument with another man Sunday night.

Boyce hit a third man with a brick. During the argument, two men were shot — but IMPD said Monday that detectives are still working to determine who pulled the trigger.

Boyce ran from the scene, broke into a nearby house, and barricaded himself inside. He later surrendered to police and was taken into custody for burglary, unlawful possession, criminal recklessness, and battery.
