IMPD Homicide Detectives investigating potential Domestic Violence Murder/Suicide on the city’s West side

INDIANAPOLIS – Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) officers responded to a call for shots fired in the 300 block of Addison St, where they located a female victim, who had died from an apparent gunshot wound.

On April 29th, 2016, at approximately 9:30a.m., officers with the IMPD responded to the 300 block of Addison St on the report of shots fired and a female lying in the alley, just East of Addison. When officers arrived, they found the female victim, identified as 27 year old Brittany Bailey, suffering from at least one gunshot wound. EMS personnel responded and pronounced the victim deceased on scene.

During the course of the investigation, IMPD homicide detectives learned that a newer model dodge charger, belonging to the victim’s husband, Giovanni Bailey, had been seen fleeing from the scene. There was further information gathered that the couple had been involved in a heated verbal argument at a gas station, West of Indianapolis, in the Plainfield area, where the red dodge charger was seen with the couple.

At approximately 12:08p.m., officers were called in reference to a male subject who was down in the alley in the 400 block of Warman Ave, and was possibly injured. When officers arrived they located the victim, who appeared to have suffered from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, in the alley. While the subject is believed to be the suspect in the above mentioned shooting death, his identity has not yet been confirmed. The suspect’s red dodge charger, was located a few blocks away on Michigan St, further leading detectives to believe that it could be the suspect.

The Marion County-Indianapolis Forensic Services Agency responded to both locations to process for possible forensic evidence. IMPD Detectives are investigating both incidents separately. The Marion County Coroner will be assisting in the investigation, as to the exact cause and manner of death in both cases. Anyone with information regarding the above incidents is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at (317)262-TIPS. Information given through Crime Stoppers is considered anonymous.
