INDIANAPOLIS — An arrest has been made after an Irvington family was forced out of their home after a person fired shots into their home multiple times over the course of months.

On Wednesday, IMPD announced an arrest was made in the case. On Thursday, the Marion County Prosecutor's Office announced formal charges against Zechari Scott. Scott is charged with three counts of criminal recklessness stemming from shootings on Aug. 30, Sept. 5 and Oct. 16.

WRTV told the story of the Huffman family on Sept. 6.

At that point, their home had shots fired into it twice. The window in their living room and one in their basement had bullet holes in them.

Their car had also been shot at and the crime didn’t stop at gunshots. The family, who had lived in Irvington for six years, says a propane tank was also thrown through the back window of the home.

On Wednesday, Scott, 31, of Lawrence was charged.

Police used eyewitness accounts, ballistic evidence and license plate readers to find and arrest Scott. License plate readers were used to track Scott in his white Pontiac sedan leaving the scene of the shooting. The white Pontiac was the car described by eyewitnesses at the scene.

Scott's Pontiac and the weapons used were eventually located at his residence.

He was taken into custody on Tuesday, according to court documents.
