(Indianapolis, Ind.) - An Indianapolis shooting suspect, once thought to possibly be hiding in southeast Indiana, is dead after a six-hour standoff with police.
Brian Fegley, 41, of Indianapolis, reportedly shot another man following an argument at an Indianapolis bar at about 1:00 a.m. Thursday. Fegley then fled.
Police in southeast Indiana were put on alert following the shooting. Fegley had at some point told his girlfriend that he was going to go to Belterra Casino in Switzerland County.
Fegley was located at about noon Thursday at the Value Place Hotel in Indianapolis’ Lawrence neighborhood. Lawrence Police Captain Curtis Bigsbee says SWAT officers stormed Fegley's hideout after six-hours of negotiations broke down.
They found that Begley took his own life.
“We entered into the room where he was at. When the officers entered, there was a self-inflicted wound by the suspect,” said Bigsbee.
The man Fegley shot was identified as Elisha McAfee, 33, of Fort Wayne. Investigators said McAfee is the son of Fegley's estranged girlfriend and that Fegley fired the shots when McAfee's mother tried to initiate a break-up.
