Personal injuries sometimes lead to wrongful deaths, and for families dealing with the loss of a loved one, it’s important to bring the responsible party to justice. When someone flees the scene of an incident that leads to death, that individual may be charged with murder, a hit-and-run or face other penalties. In the following case, a man may end up with a conviction for murder as a result of his alleged actions.
A 30-year-old man has been arrested and charged after being connected to a fatal shooting that took place in Indianapolis. According to the news report on Oct. 1, the original incident took place on May 29. It was at a Shell gas station where a 50-year-old man was discovered with gunshot wounds. He passed away as a result of the gunshot wounds just a short time after the police arrived at the scene.
The police reported that while the man was a gas-station employee, it didn’t appear that the incident was a robbery. On Sept. 26, the above-mentioned 30-year-old man was connected to the crime and arrested. He now faces formal murder charges. It is not yet clear what caused the man to allegedly attack and kill the gas-station employee, but the investigation is still ongoing into this case.
Personal injuries, like gunshot wounds, can quickly become life-threatening for those who suffer from them. Victims need to do what they can to get medical help as quickly as possible. If they pass away, it is possible to seek compensation from the person responsible for those injuries, regardless of the police’s intent to file charges.
