Damoine Wilcoxson convicted in IMPD district headquarters shootings

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The Marion County Prosecutor announced Wednesday night that Damoine Wilcoxson has been convicted for shooting at two IMPD district headquarters in Oct. 2016.

He was arrested on Halloween last year after a SWAT standoff in connection with the two shootings.

Wilcoxson was found guilty of two counts of Attempt Murder for firing at the IMPD North District headquarters on the night of Oct. 13, 2016, where two officers inside the building were targeted.

The jury also found him guilty of Criminal Recklessness for the shooting that occurred at IMPD’s Northwest District headquarters on Oct. 4, 2016.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry released a statement about the verdict:

“It is simply a miracle that officers at the North District headquarters were not injured or killed in the rapid fire of 16 high-powered rounds at the District headquarters, including a round which missed an officer’s head by inches.

“Damoine Wilcoxon intentionally targeted our public safety officers, and we are obviously pleased that the excellent work by IMPD investigators and our staff has resulted in these convictions.”

IMPD Chief Bryan Roach thanked Curry's team for successfully prosecuting the case:

“I want to thank Prosecutor Curry and his team. This verdict is a culmination of hard work by our investigators, crime lab, deputy prosecutors, and jurors. The resolve of our men and women to protect our community remains true and unwavering. Those who threaten others with harm, including the men and women of law enforcement, who selflessly protect our community will never be tolerated.  Our commitment to ensuring our city’s safety is and always will be paramount.”

Wilcoxson is also charged with murder from a fatal shooting in Zionsville.

Police believe he is responsible for the murder of 82-year-old Jac Clements, who was at his mailbox when man armed with an assault weapon opened fire, killing him.

A sentencing hearing has been set for December 22 at 10:00 a.m. in Criminal Court 6.
