Indianapolis man charged in fatal shooting in Cumberland

CUMBERLAND, Ind. — An Indianapolis man is facing charges following an investigation into a shooting outside a gas station that left two people wounded and another dead.

The shooting happened on September 21 outside the Speedway gas station located at 10th Street and German Church Road. As shots were fired, police said innocent bystanders ducked for cover inside the gas station and even hid in beverage coolers.

Outside the gas station, police said three people were shot during the shooting. Two were transported to the hospital in critical condition, and one later died. The third was taken to the hospital in a dark-colored vehicle.

An investigation into the shooting has identified 29-year-old Devin Lamont Murrell as a suspect in the case. The Cumberland Metropolitan Police Department said evidence suggests Murrell worked with Daeshu Lamont Reese, the man who died in the shooting, as the aggressors.

Murrell faces charges of murder with a deadly weapon, attempted assault with a deadly weapon and criminal recklessness for his role in the incident.

The department said detectives are continuing to gather additional evidence to provide to the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office in connection with this investigation for consideration of future charges.
