INDIANAPOLIS — A person has died following a Thursday shooting in the 1800 block of Brookside Avenue on the Near Eastside.

Officers responded to the area around 5 p.m. and found a man injured in the street. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

He was later identified as Micah Anderson, 38, the Marion County Coroner's Office said Friday.

On Friday, IMPD announced a suspect had been arrested in connection to Anderson's death.

He was identified as Tymani Johnson, 23. Charges of murder and unlawful carrying of a handgun with a prior felony conviction were filed against him Tuesday, online court records show.

Police say multiple individuals cooperated during the investigation and based on witness information and investigative techniques, police identified a suspect vehicle. That vehicle was found in the western part of Indiana and the suspect was taken back to Indianapolis.

Anyone with information about this incident should contact Detective Eric Amos at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317.327.3475 or e-mail him at Eric.Amos@indy.gov.

The shooting came almost exactly 24 hours after a double shooting left a 38-year-old man dead in the 1900 block of Wallace Avenue. That shooting happened approximately 2.5 miles from the Brookside Avenue shooting.
