INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis police said Friday evening they had arrested a suspect in the fatal July 11 shooting of Sean Hamilton, marking the day’s fourth homicide arrest announced by the department.

Timmie Moss, 29, was taken into custody Friday on a preliminary charge of reckless homicide, a level 5 felony, in connection with the death of 25-year-old Hamilton in the 2300 block of North Harding Street.

Marion County court records show a warrant was issued for Moss’ arrest on July 17 with a $60,000 surety bond. As of Friday evening, Moss was being held at the Marion County Jail while awaiting an initial hearing.

Along with Moss, IMPD announced the arrest of three other homicide suspects on Friday. Find more information about those cases below:

Steven Gaston, 23, was taken into custody on a preliminary charge of murder for the July shooting that left Robinson dead.

Police were called to the 5600 block of Brendon Way Parkway around 10:45 a.m. on July 1 on a report of a person shot. They arrived to find Robinson suffering from multiple apartment gunshot wounds. He died at a nearby hospital a short time later.

Police at the time said they believed the shooting might be domestic in nature.
