Noblesville shooting leaves 1 dead
UPDATE: Police have identified the deceased male as 18-year-old Grayson Aubrey Rhue, of Roswell, Georgia. Rhue’s family has been notified by police.
NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — A fatal Thursday night shooting in Noblesville “does not appear to be a random act,” police said Friday.
Just after 10:15 p.m., Noblesville Police Department officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 21000 block of Raccoon Court. That’s a residential area near 216th Street and Mill Creek Road, just west of Morse Reservoir.
Officers arrived and found a deceased male by the driveway of a home. Police identified the deceased male as 18-year-old Grayson Aubrey Rhue, of Roswell, Georgia.
Investigators interviewed three people inside the home who were “associated with the incident,” Lt. Bruce Barnes said in a statement Friday. The three people were not the homeowners, but were guests who were housesitting while the homeowners were away.
All three people who spoke with police were released after being interviewed. No arrests have been made.
According to police, Rhue came to the front door of the residence and rang the doorbell. Rhue had a brief conversation with the three people inside the home and walked away. Rhue returned to the home a few seconds later and entered the home. After entering the home, Rhue pulled out a handgun and aimed it at the houseguests.
One of the houseguests pulled out a handgun and fired several shots at Rhue, who immediately fled the house before collapsing at the end of the driveway. Officers arrived to the scene a short time later to find Rhue’s body. Rhue’s handgun was collected by police.
“Based on the information gathered to this point, this does not appear to be a random act,” Lt. Bruce Barnes said in a statement Friday.
Police are attempting to locate another person who was likely with Rhue during the incident. The person appears to be male, but other details are limited due to his face and hands being covered by a mask and gloves.
Anyone with information was asked to contact Detective Spencer Flowers by email at email@example.com.
