INDIANAPOLIS -- A man was arrested Monday for an October 2017 homicide on Indianapolis' northeast side.

Police have been looking for Jeffery Buckley, 43, since he was charged with the murder of Kirk Shurill.

In order to elude law enforcement, officers say Buckley was using fake ID's, changed his appearance and changed phones.

He traveled from Indianapolis to California, Missouri, Kentucky and New Orleans before returning to Indianapolis.

Police say Buckley had a firearm and over a pound of marijuana with him when he was arrested.

Police responding to the scene found Shurill suffering from at least one gunshot wound in the driver’s seat of a vehicle that had crashed into another car occupied by an off-duty police officer.

Shurill was transported to Methodist Hospital, where he later died.
