INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Dec. 2, 2015) – Indianapolis Metropolitan police have made an arrest following a fatal shooting on the east side last week.
On Wednesday, Nov. 25, Ronald Munn, 28, was shot following a disturbance in the 3300 block of North Butler Avenue. It happened around 11:45 a.m., according to IMPD.
Officers found him unresponsive at a gas station in the intersection of East 34th Street and North Emerson Avenue. Investigators said he’d driven himself there after being shot and then collapsed. He died in surgery at Eskenazi Hospital.
On Wednesday, IMPD took Brent Thomas into custody in connection with Munn’s murder. Witnesses said Munn had gotten into an altercation with a man—a friend of Thomas’—that he’d been having trouble with. During the fight, Thomas ran up and fired approximately six shots, according to court documents. Witnesses identified the shooter as Thomas and picked him out of a photo lineup.
An autopsy revealed that Munn died from multiple gunshot wounds, according to court documents.
