INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Indianapolis Crime Gun Intelligence Center (CGIC) has made an arrest in the shooting of a Colts assistant's home back in May 2019.

IMPD officers were dispatched to the 8500 block of Cressmoor Court on May 12 for reports of multiple shots fired into a home.

Shortly after, Eyewitness News learned that more than 80 shots were fired at the home belonging to Parks Frazier, an assistant to the Indianapolis Colts head coach.

Frazier was not home at the time of the shooting and no one was injured in the incident, but neighbors' homes were also hit in the gunfire.

Detectives seized a firearm believed to be involved in the shooting May 17. Police also recovered a cellphone they believed one of the suspects dropped in the street.

IMPD said the Indianapolis CGIC located the suspect, identified as Damarcus Turner, on Aug. 10 and arrested him for his role in the shooting.

Authorities say through the course of the investigation, detectives learned the shooting was a result of a feud with known suspects.

"The residence and victim in the shooting had no ties to the feud and detectives believe the residence was mistakenly targeted," officials said.

Indianapolis CGIC is continuing to investigate this case.
