Carmel PD says suspect in deadly shooting pointed gun at officer

The officer involved has been temporarily reassigned until the administrative review is finished, which is standard policy.

CARMEL, Ind. — Carmel Police are releasing new details in a deadly shooting on July 27.

According to police, it began with an argument on a home on Riverrock Ct. During the argument, a 911 call was made because there was concern 26-year-old Julio Cesar Virula was armed with a gun and threatening suicide. While on that call, dispatchers heard gunshots and alerted the responding officers.

Police found 28-year-old Taylor Cox, the girlfriend of the suspect, in the 14300 block of Riverrock Ct. She had been shot multiple times and had already died.

The second victim, a 66-year-old woman, was found just north of that area and also had been shot multiple times. She was taken to the hospital and has since been released.

As 911 dispatchers received more calls, they were able to direct officers to the suspect, who was on Rippling Brook Way at that point. As an officer approached Virula, police say the suspect pointed a gun at the officer. The officer fired at Virula with his rifle, killing him.

The officer involved has been temporarily reassigned until the administrative review is finished, which is standard policy.

Police are still asking that anyone who might have witnessed this incident or has information or evidence, such as video surveillance recordings, to call the non-emergency dispatch telephone number at 317-571-2580.
