Default Indianapolis WM, 42 shot to death by the negro


Murder suspect arrested after he tried to run and hide from police
Posted 9:06 AM, January 24, 2019

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. A murder suspect is in custody after police say he was involved in a police chase Thursday morning.

Officers caught the suspect--identified as 26-year-old Derrick Warner--around 9:35 a.m. Warner was wanted in a murder case.

According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD), this all started when officers tried to make a traffic stop around 7 a.m. The driver took off, leading officers on a brief pursuit.

The car stopped at the intersection of Prospect and Randolph in the Fountain Square area. During the chase, Warner got out and ran off. SWAT and K9 officers were called to help with the search; the heavy police presence prompted two nearby schools to go on lockdown as a precaution.

Investigators believe Warner shot and killed Richard Pettry Junior on Jan. 12.

"It was such a shock. God, he was invincible," said the victim's cousin, Dena Pettry.

Dena says the 42-year-old murder victim worked as a contractor and loved his family

"Were a very close family so were very deeply saddened by this loss. I mean Richard was everybodys best friend," said Dena.

The dispute between Pettry and Warner appears to have started in December when Pettry was called to help a family member who has a drug problem and claimed she was trapped inside a house.

When Pettry went to help that family member, he was allegedly confronted by a man with a gun.

According to court records, several witnesses identified Warner as the shooter during the murder a couple of weeks later.
