GREENWOOD, Ind.–A man was shot and killed Monday afternoon at a home in Greenwood.

The Greenwood Police Department says the shooting happened around 2:45 on Odell Lane near U.S. 31 and Smith Valley Road. That’s in a neighborhood south of Greenwood High School.

They say they got a call from inside the home were told that someone inside shot an intruder.

Police found a teenager and another woman in the home, 21-year-old Caitlin Crafton. They found 20-year-old Jerimiah Sirr Martin dead from multiple gunshot wounds in a bedroom upstairs.

Police say Crafton told them that she left the home and the 16-year-old boy at her house. While she was gone, she told police that she got a call from a man, later identified as 20-year-old Marcus Deon Jones Jr. from Indianapolis, who wanted to buy marijuana from her.

Crafton claims that Jones Jr. owed her money from “an earlier marijuana transaction.” Crafton then called the boy to let him know that Jones was on his way to her house. At the O’Dell Lane address, Jones Jr. met with the teenager and said he did not have enough money and would return shortly with what he owed. When Jones Jr. returned, police think he had Martin with him.

Investigators think Martin then showed a handgun and threatened the boy. The three of them then went upstairs to the master bedroom. While in the master bedroom Martin put his handgun on the bed so that he could pick up another rifle that was already in the bedroom. When he did this, they think the teenager grabbed Martin’s gun and began shooting at him with it. A fight ensued between both of them and police believe Martin

was able to get the rifle away from Martin and shoot him with it multiple times, killing him.

Jones Jr. ran away once the fight began, but officers say they later stopped and arrested him in Indianapolis. Jones Jr. is facing Level 2 Burglary
