7 slain in Indy home

02 Jun

Another story making national headlines is a slaying of seven people on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis.

Police were called to the 500 block of North Hamilton Avenue about 10:15 p.m. after neighbors reported hearing screaming and several shots.

Police said the victims were shot to death execution-style, which typically means the victim is bound and shot in the head. However, it was unclear what Indianapolis Police Department investigators found at the scene.

The shooting occured in one of the rougher parts of Indianapolis. The last time a crime of this proportion occured in Indy was in 2000 when a woman in Morgan County deliberately hit another vehicle head-on, killing seven people. The driver was convicted of seven counts of murder and sentenced to 215 years in prison.

Victims include Alberto Covarrubias, 11; David Covarrubias, 9; Luis Albarran, 5; Flora Albarran, 22; Emma Valdez, 46; Alberto Covarrubias, 56; and Magno Albarran, 29. Indianapolis Police Department has identified a suspect, Desmond Turner, 28, who was on parole. IPD is seeking any information about Turner or his whereabouts.
