An Indiana transient man was arrested on suspicion of murder after an anonymous caller phoned police about a possible early morning shooting.
On Feb. 8 just after 1 a.m., a person phoned 911 about a possible shooting on W. Graham Drive in Bloomington.
“However, the caller could only provide vague information and refused to identify themselves or others believed to have been present when the shooting occurred,” Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo said, The Herald-Times reported.
Officers responding to the area were unable to locate which residence possibly may have been involved.
Several hours later, police obtained a warrant after speaking with two individuals with knowledge of the shooting and officers entered an apartment on the street and found Gary O’Bryant, 56, who claimed to be taking a nap on the living room couch, authorities said.
“Officers located evidence that indicated that someone had indeed been injured inside the residence,” Pedigo said, noting they then found a 29-year-old deceased man inside a bedroom whose body was “wrapped in several blankets that were bound with rope.”
An autopsy later revealed the victim was fatally shot in the head.
He was being held at the Monroe County jail. The investigation is ongoing.
