INDIANAPOLIS — An investigation into a deadly shooting that forced an Indianapolis bar to close has led to charges against two security guards that are not related to the homicide.

On Friday, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department announced charges for Cameron Lumpkin-Weremay and Jordan Morris who were serving as security guards at JD's Pub the night a 27-year-old woman was killed. The Marion County Prosecutor's Office filed formal charges against both.

Lumpkin-Weremay, 22, the owner of Chosen Protection Services, is charged with operating as a security guard without a license, according to a press release from IMPD. According to the probable cause affidavit, Chosen Protection Services was registered with the state in February 2022 but as of April 4 there was no security license on file.

Morris, 32, was charged with invasion of privacy, which IMPD said is the legal name for violating a protective order. IMPD said he had an active protective order that prohibited him from possessing a firearm. According to the affidavit, Morris also worked for the company.

As of Friday, Morris has an active warrant, according to IMPD and online court documents.

IMPD also released a video allegedly showing the two men with firearms outside the pub.

Deja Morse, 27, was killed at the bar earlier this month.

The pub was ordered to close by the Pike Township Fire Marshal after IMPD said they were operating without a liquor license, food permit and amusement permit.

IMPD is still asking for anyone with information about illegal activity at bars and clubs to email IMPD Capt. Christopher Boomershine at, Lt. William Carter at or call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-TIPS (8477).
