A baby, a toddler and their mothers were shot to death while the women held their children in their arms, police said Tuesday as officers searched for two men seen running from the victims’ home. All four victims were shot repeatedly late Monday, said Indianapolis Assistant Police Chief Eva Talley-Sanders. All died at the house on the city’s north side except for 4-month-old Charlii Yarrell, who died at a hospital.
“I can’t imagine what kind of evil it takes to shoot two women and the innocent children in their arms,” Police Chief Michael Spears said at a news conference. The other victims were Jordan Hunt, 23 months; his mother, Gina Hunt, 24; and Charlii’s mother, Andrea Yarrell, 24.
Police said they had identified people they wish to question and were looking for them, but they would not name the people or describe them. Two handguns were found within a block of the house, where all four of those killed lived, said Sgt. Matthew Mount, a police spokesman. “Whoever is responsible for this, we’re going to track you down like dogs,” Marion County Sheriff Frank Anderson said. “We’re not going to stop until we find you and put you in a cage where you belong.”
