IMPD homicide detectives have arrested 28-year-old Ernesto Gillot for his alleged involvement in a Sunday evening homicide.
On Sunday June 12, 2022, just before 7:00 p.m., Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) officers were dispatched to 3734 N. Mitthoefer Road, on a report of a person shot. When officers arrived, they located an adult male inside a vehicle at this location, suffering from injuries consistent with a gunshot wound(s). Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services (IEMS) responded and transported the victim to an area hospital in critical condition. Shortly after arrival at the hospital, unfortunately the victim was pronounced deceased by medical staff.
IMPD homicide detectives responded to the scene and began their investigation. Detectives were able to identify Ernesto Gillot as a suspect. Gillot was located and taken into custody without further incident. He was arrested for murder. Preliminary information leads investigators to believe this incident occurred over an argument.
The Indianapolis-Marion County Forensic Services Agency responded to identify and collect potential forensic evidence. The Marion County Coroner’s Office will assist and determine the exact manner and cause of death. The MCCO will release the name of the decedent once a proper next-of-kin notification has been made.
The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office (MCPO) will make the final charging decision.
