INDIANAPOLIS — A man was fatally shot in a homicide early Thursday near an apartment complex on the city's west side, police say.

Police found the man outside while responding about 6 a.m. to the 3000 block of Rolling Dunes Drive for a report of a person shot, according to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Officer Samone Burris.

That location is near the Waterfront Pointe apartment complex near Interstate 74.

The man was later pronounced dead at the scene.

On June 5, the Marion County Coroner's Office said the man had been identified as Anthony Garland, 34. His death was ruled a homicide by gunshot wounds.

IMPD detectives say Garland was a ride-share driver and was reported missing and his vehicle was also gone.

His vehicle was later found in Merriville, Indiana in the suspect's possession.

IMPD announced Friday that a 24-year-old man was arrested on preliminary murder and robbery charges in connection to the victim's death. WRTV is not naming the suspect until formal charges are filed.

Anyone with more information was urged to contact IMPD Homicide Detective Christopher Edwards at 317-327-3475 or Tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477 (TIPS).
