IMPD: Man arrested in northeast side shooting that left 1 dead, 1 injured

Officers located two people with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds. They were both reported to be in critical condition, and one later died.

INDIANAPOLIS — IMPD arrested a man for his alleged role in a Sunday morning double shooting at a northeast side apartment complex that left a man dead and woman injured.

Jailyn Hurt, 26, was arrested Tuesday on preliminary charges of murder, attempted murder and aggravated assault, police said.

IMPD officers were called to investigate a shooting on Mill View Court in the Peppermill Farms apartment complex off Shadeland Avenue south of 46th Street at 9 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 26.

Officers located the man and woman inside an apartment with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds. They were both reported to be in critical condition when taken from the scene in ambulances. Police said the man died at the hospital.

On Monday, the Marion County Coroner's Office identified the man as 25-year-old Gerald Eugene Lewis III.

Homicide detectives responded to the scene to begin an investigation and found no sign of forced entry into the apartment. During their initial investigation, they identified Hurt as a person of interest and arrested him on drug charges Sunday. 

On Tuesday, Hurt, who remained in jail, was arrested on the three additional preliminary charges. 

"Cooperation from members of the community was instrumental in this investigation," IMPD said in a statement Wednesday.

The Marion County Prosecutor's Office will make final charging decisions in the case.

Anyone with additional information on the incident is asked to contact Detective Brad Nuetzman at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or email Brad.Nuetzman@indy.gov. 

Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477.
