INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indianapolis Metropolitan police announced an arrest Wednesday in the death of a man on the southwest side.

IMPD arrested Ryan Scott, 19, in connection with the murder of Steven Hunter, 19. Hunter was found in the grass in the 5900 block of Milhouse Court near Thompson and High School roads around 9 p.m. Monday. A woman made the discovery while driving home that night and said there was blood all over the street.

Witnesses reported seeing a dark SUV speeding in the neighborhood about an hour before Hunter’s body was found, but they weren’t able to get a good description of the driver.

Investigators believe Scott shot Hunter during a robbery involving suspected narcotics. The case will go to the Marion County Prosecutor's Office for review.
