Police on Thursday identified the victim in a fatal shooting on the Westside as a 17-year-old girl who apparently was taking part in a robbery.
Trachelle Robinson, Indianapolis, was sitting in a car and was struck in the neck by a stray bullet from the gun of one of her accomplices, who had exchanged gunfire with a clerk at a liquor store in the 3600 block of Lafayette Road at 8:20 p.m., said Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department spokesman officer Kendale Adams.
Nobody else was hit, and two of men ran from the shop, Adams said. About 20 minutes later, a patrolman spotted two men waiting, apparently for a ride, in a nearby parking lot.
The officer questioned and then arrested the men: Jeramie Seabury, 21, and Tymon Brown, 23, both of Indianapolis.
A third suspect, Tia Washum, 25, Indianapolis, ran across the street to get help from two paramedics who were eating in a fast-food restaurant, Adams said.
Washum, Brown and Seabury were charged with one preliminary count each of murder and of attempted robbery. They are being held in the Marion County Jail.
