Yes, Dena, the victim was “invincible.”
Until he decided to relax around blacks…
A murder suspect is in custody after police say he was involved in a police chase Thursday morning.
Officers caught the suspect–identified as 26-year-old Derrick Warner–around 9:35 a.m. Warner was wanted in a murder case.
According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD), this all started when officers tried to make a traffic stop around 7 a.m. The driver took off, leading officers on a brief pursuit.
The car stopped at the intersection of Prospect and Randolph in the Fountain Square area. During the chase, Warner got out and ran off. SWAT and K9 officers were called to help with the search; the heavy police presence prompted two nearby schools to go on lockdown as a precaution.
Investigators believe Warner shot and killed Richard Pettry Junior on Jan. 12.
“It was such a shock. God, he was invincible,” said the victim’s cousin, Dena Pettry.
