INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said Thursday it has arrested a man in connection with the shooting death of a female on Sunday night.
Detectives arrested 19-year-old Brenan Mosley on Wednesday. He faces preliminary charges of murder and criminal confinement.
Officers responded to reports of a shooting around 8:24 p.m. Sunday in the 8800 block of Westfield Boulevard. That’s a residential area just north of 86th Street.
IMPD officers found Mosley and a female suffering from gunshot wounds. The female died at the scene. The Marion County Coroner’s Office has identified her as 20-year-old Autumn Garay. Court documents said she and Mosley had been “dating off and on.” The court documents also called it an “ongoing violent relationship.”
After Mosley was released from the hospital, he told investigators he had attempted to stop Garay from leaving a home while pointing a gun at her chest. When Garay went to walk by Mosley, he shot her in the chest, the court documents said.
Online court records did not show a case yet filed for Mosley. IMPD said in court documents that it would later file more detailed information with the prosecutor’s office.
