INDIANAPOLIS–Malik Halfacre, the man wanted for questioning in the murders of four people in a house on North Randolph St., Saturday night, has been captured. He gave himself up to the Indianapolis Metro Police SWAT Team Sunday evening.
Police said earlier Sunday that they believe Halfacre took a six-month-old girl, Malia Halfacre, from the home where the four people, including a child, were found.
Police got a lead at around 2 p.m., said Officer Genae Cook. That lead took them to a house near 10th and Arlington, where Halfacre was holed up in the attic.
After officers fired tear gas and ordered him to surrender, Halfacre gave up, and was being questioned by detectives.
The little girl was found safe Sunday morning. Police had not given out much information on the four people found dead, including their names.
“As a community, our hearts break for the victims and the families impacted by senseless violence last night. Although we are grateful for the safe location of two children, we mourn the loss of those whose lives were cut short by two separate instances of domestic disputes that turned deadly,” said Mayor Joe Hogsett.
“Over the last year, we’ve seen far too many tragedies occur when the proliferation of guns has collided with interpersonal conflict. These challenges are not just threats to our public safety, but the well-being of our community. I remain committed to locking arms with neighborhood and religious leaders to address these generational dilemmas,” said the Mayor.
