Noblesville Police Make Arrests in Shooting Case

Noblesville Police yesterday made two arrests in connection with a shots-fired incident that occurred in the 600 block of Washington Street.

On May 26, 2022, at approximately 5 p.m., officers from the Noblesville Police Department responded to the 600 block of Washington Street (Noblesville) after hearing what appeared to be multiple gunshots in the area. Officers also received dispatched reports of gunfire from citizens in the area and callers were able to provide responding officers with a vehicle description from which the gunfire reportedly came from.

A short time later officers located the suspect vehicle which had been identified as a silver Nissan passenger vehicle occupied by at least two male subjects. Officers initiated a traffic stop in the 8600 block of Terrace Place (Fishers). Officers initially took all of the occupants into custody which consisted of two adult males, one adult female, and a juvenile female. After further investigation of the suspect vehicle, officers were able to locate a handgun along with several spent shell casings scattered throughout the front passenger compartment.

Assisting officers responded to several scenes in an area between 4th and 6th Street and Washington and Division Street that had reported seeing and hearing gunfire coming from the suspect vehicle. Officers collected several shell casings and interviewed all of the reporting parties. Officers located damage to at least two residences and one vehicle. There were no reported injuries as a result of the gunfire and nobody, in particular, seems to have been targeted.

The driver and front right seat passenger were identified and interviewed by detectives and booked at the Hamilton County Jail on the following preliminary charges:
