INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man has been arrested after allegedly fatally shooting a man while driving on Interstate 70 on Saturday.

Indiana State Police arrested 24-year-old Juan Garrado Vivas of Indianapolis in the case.

Police initially looked into it as a crash investigation.

Police said 27-year-old Devon Anderson of Indianapolis was killed in a crash on Saturday evening while traveling west on I-70 near Post Road.

Anderson was involved in a crash with a vehicle driven by Vivas. At the time, Vivas was sent to the hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.

An autopsy later revealed Anderson had been shot in the head. The investigation led police to identify Vivas as a person of interest.

Police believe Vivas shot Anderson before his vehicle crashed into a vehicle driven by Vivas.

Vivas faces a preliminary charge of murder after being arrested early Wednesday morning.
