INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Police have arrested a man accused of killing a man and woman on back-to-back days earlier this month.

Around 8:30 a.m. January 8, police were called to the 700 block of Hardin Boulevard in response to a person shot.

Officers arrived to find 21-year-old Chrishaun Snelling unresponsive and suffering from apparent gunshot wounds in the stairwell of an apartment complex, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

Snelling was taken to Eskenazi Hospital in serious condition and later pronounced dead.

Just after 10:30 a.m. on January 9, officers were called to another apartment on Westmore Drive in response to a person who appeared to be dead.

Police found 24-year-old Shaugnje Scott unresponsive. She was pronounced dead at the scene, and further investigation revealed her injuries were consistent with gunshot wounds.

During the investigation into both deaths, detectives were able to gather facts and evidence that enabled them to obtain an arrest warrant for Damarion Moore through the Marion County Prosecutors Office.

On January 17, officers found Moore in Champaign, Illinois, where he was arrested for his alleged involvement in the deaths of Snelling and Scott.

Formal charges have not yet been filed so it's not clear how Moore knew Snelling.  Police reports show the suspect had previously dated the second victim.
