INDIANAPOLIS – Just before 2:00 a.m. on May 30, 2017 officers were sent to the 1100 block of Congress Avenue for a person shot. When officers arrived, they found 39-year-old Damon Young in the street suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

On January 16, 2018 at approximately 7:30 p.m. Homicide detectives arrested 33-year-old Clarence Holder for his involvement in the death of Damon young.
