INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A man who was wanted for attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon was arrested by police.
According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, officers responded to a burglary-in-progress in the 1900 block of East 38th Street around 10:30 Monday evening.
Attempts were made by police to get into the residence that appeared to have a burglar inside, but were unsuccessful. However, the responding officers sat outside the residence waiting for the burglar to exit.
When the burglar eventually did walk out of the house, a short foot chase ensued with police. At one point during the chase, the suspect withdrew a 9mm handgun. Shortly after, police did apprehend the suspect.
Police said the man lied about his identity. Officers on scene, though the use of a fingerprint reader, were able to identify the suspect as 31-year-old Colen McDade.
It was then discovered that McDade had several outstanding warrants for attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon. Police said McDade is a suspect in an August 21 shooting near the State Fairgrounds.
