The Count Keeps Growing

It is starting to get a little redundant, but Indy had another murder last night. We are up to 116.

Why has the Mayor been quiet on the issue since he blue panel?????

A 45-year-old father of five children was shot and killed Monday in the front yard of his Near-Eastside home, apparently after a brief argument with a neighbor who had been a friend.

Allen Eugene Humphrey's death brings the Marion County homicide count to 116 this year.
By late Monday, Indianapolis police had arrested Kevin Moncrief, 53, on preliminary charges of murder in Humphrey's shooting. Moncrief turned himself in about four hours after the shooting, which occurred about 6 p.m. in the 1800 block of Brookside Avenue.


Friends said violent death has visited Humphrey's family at least twice before -- his two older brothers were killed in separate incidents nearly three decades ago.

Friends and family members who arrived at the scene as word of Humphrey's slaying spread said the death adds to the growing frustration with the rise of violence.

"This has got to stop. This is stupid!" said Sharon Ward, 49, whose family is close to Humphrey's family. She and her brother, David Walker, 46, and other siblings grew up with the victim and his siblings.
