INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A 20-year-old man was arrested Wednesday morning for his accused role in Saturday’s deadly shooting at a gas station on the city’s east side, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says.

Martice McGee was arrested in connection with the deaths of 29-year-old Jimmy Thomas Jr. and 26-year-old Jaquareous Mitchell on Saturday on North Emerson Avenue.

IMPD responded to a report of two people shot at the Shell gas station at 3402 N. Emerson Ave. at 5:20 p.m. Saturday.

Officers arrived and found Thomas and Mitchell inside the store with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds. Mitchell died at the scene, and Thomas was taken in critical condition to Methodist Hospital, where he later died.

Police say they spoke with multiple witnesses and reviewed surveillance footage and identified the alleged suspect. McGee was arrested for two counts of murder.

The Marion County Prosecutors Office will review the case and determine a final charging decision.

This story was updated to correct the name of one of the men who died.
