INDIANAPOLIS — A 19-year-old male was arrested by homicide detectives from the IMPD for being involved in a double homicide that occurred on the north side Indianapolis last month.
Camran Perry, 19 years old, was arrested Monday in connection to the shooting deaths of Blake Coffman (20 year-old) and Andrew Jones (21 year-old). On Wednesday, Perry was charged with two counts each of murder and one count for carrying a gun without a permit.
Shooting took place in the 8800 block Westfield Way at 7 p.m., just southwest of East 91st Street or Westfield Boulevard.
Responding to a call about a shot person, officers found two men with gunshot wounds. Both men were quickly taken to hospital but declared dead shortly afterwards.
Police spoke to a witness about the shooting, and she saw one of the victims fall out of the car’s driver’s side. The witness’s boyfriend followed her out and found the second victim on the front passenger side.
Police believe Jones drove the car while Coffman was the passenger.
Detectives searched the phones of the victims and found an Instagram conversation between Coffman and Perry. This was the last communication Coffman had with Perry, just before the shooting.
Coffman had been exchanging messages on the account, which was blocked by Coffman shortly after the shooting. The account was then deactivated. According to court documents, Perry was later identified by police on an instagram account. Police say Perry admitted to sending messages to Coffman in order to purchase marijuana when he was brought to police for questioning.
Investigators claim that Perry also told them that he got in his car at night and had an argument with Jones after the drug deal. Perry claimed Jones threatened him with the use of a gun. Perry then took the gun from Jones and shot him before running off into the woods.
