IMPD: Man arrested for role in death of man who died months after east side shooting

The shooting happened just after midnight on Monday, June 27, 2022.

INDIANAPOLIS — IMPD arrested a man Tuesday for his alleged role in the death of another man who passed away in September 2022, roughly three months after he was shot on Indianapolis' east side, IMPD said.

Thomas Majors Jr., 29, was located and arrested by IMPD on a warrant for attempted murder.

Detectives also served an open warrant on Majors for domestic battery and arrested him for domestic battery and criminal confinement with a separate incident in the past week, IMPD said.

The shooting happened just after midnight on Monday, June 27, 2022.

Police were called to the 1400 block of North Gladstone Avenue, near the intersection of 16th Street and North Sherman Drive. 

They arrived to find 28-year-old Gregory Ware with a gunshot wound to his chest. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition and was released more than two months later.

However, IMPD said Ware died due to complications from his injuries on Sept. 4, 2022.

The Marion County Prosecutor's Office charged Majors with attempted murder in July 2022.

More than a month later, on Oct. 28, the coroner's office ruled Ware's death a homicide.
