INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis man was recently convicted after he was involved in a July 2022 shooting in Broad Ripple.
According to a news release from the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, Damien Kimbrough was convicted of one count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, a Level 4 felony, pointing a firearm, a Level 6 felony and a misdemeanor in relation to the July 2022 shooting.
According to previous reports, four people were injured in a shooting near the intersection of Guilford Avenue and Broad Ripple Avenue on July 31.
