Police said Erica Petry was in a residence and had shot herself.

RICHMOND, Ind. — The Richmond Police Departments said a suspect in a homicide that happened last month has been located.

Erica Petry was identified by detectives as a suspect in a November homicide. Wednesday, RPD asked for the public's help in locating Petry.

On Thursday, RPD said Wayne County Sheriff's Department deputies and RPD investigators found Petry at a home on U.S. 27 South. When they found her, she was suffering from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Petry was taken to Miami Valley Medical Center by helicopter. In a statement Thursday, police said she was "stable but in critical condition."

Police said Petry has not been charged in connection to the November homicide. That investigation is ongoing.
