INDIANAPOLIS–An arrest has been made in a murder case that dates back to January of this year. 

IMPD says they have arrested Jerrick Whitley, 32, and charged him with murder, robbery, and dealing narcotics. Police believe he was involved in the shooting deaths of Deron Gray (24) and James Ratcliffe (50). 

They also think he played a role in the wounding of Anthony Christopher, 49. 

The shooting happened on N. Sherman Drive January 28, 2018, which is near Grace Tuxedo Park. 

Whitley was arrested Saturday July 14 at a house on Broadway Street. 

Court records show the violence started when Whitley’s cousin began harassing Gray, asking him, “Why you keep looking at my girlfriend?”

That dispute then spilled into the business parking lot, where five people were shot, including a security guard. Prosecutors say Whitley opened fire on the brawl. Those shots, they say, killed Gray and Ratcliffe.
