Indianapolis metro police confirm that a police chase ended overnight with the suspect’s vehicle in the White River. The pursuit began on the city’s southeast side just after 1:30 a.m. with the suspect leading police through that side of town before driving over into the river near West Raymond Street and South West Street. Police have taken the suspect into custody and called to have the vehicle fished out of the water.

Days after the neighbors in the Butler Tarkington neighborhood asked for help to battle encroaching violent crime that they know they’re not immune from, they now have gotten more evidence that crime fighting tactics are needed. They’re watching as metro police are investigating another shooting death in their neighborhood. This time, police were called in on a report of shots fired around the 4100 block of North Byram Avenue around 8 p.m. Tuesday night. After a search, police found an unidentified man in an alley with multiple wounds. Responders pronounced him dead at the scene. Police would like you to call Crime Stoppers if you have any info at (317)262-TIPS.

A man accused of shooting a gas station employee in the face and stomach is behind bars and is due in court this  Wednesday afternoon.  IMPD says 26-year-old Terrance Harris was arrested Tuesday morning, just hours after he allegedly shot the clerk at point blank range.  Officers were called to the Speedway near 71st Street and Keystone Avenue around 1 a.m.  Police say the shooting wasn’t a robbery attempt. Harris’ hearing is at 1 o’clock and the clerk remains in critical condition.

Governor Pence wants to spend $1 billion to rehab Indiana’s roads and bridges. Pence says no new taxes would be required. Instead, the money would come from a combination of the state’s reserves, creating new spending and borrowing money through bonding. If the plan gets legislative approval, 220 bridges and 18-hundred miles of roads would be repaired before 2020.

There’s a breaking story out of Nashville Tennessee Wednesday morning affecting a school with a large alumni association here in Indy.  That’s the Tennessee State University community. One college student there has been shot in the head and two others injured during a violent incident at a party near the TSU campus overnight. This happened at a residence on Albion Street around 12:40 a.m. this morning stemming allegedly from the denial of entrance to three people who showed up at that party. Shots then rang out outside. The victims are between the ages of 19 and 20. They are students from TSU, Middle Tennessee State University and Nashville State University. The unidentified student shot in the head is now listed in very critical condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Democratic presidential front runner Hillary Clinton is defending herself against claims that she has flip-flopped on key issues. In Tuesday night’s Democratic debate on CNN, Clinton suggested that it’s okay to reconsider positions when new information emerges. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders criticized media coverage of Clinton’s email scandals. Sanders said there are many more important issues that deserve attention, starting with income inequality. Most of the candidates also weighed in on #BlackLivesMatter.

Reality TV star and former NBA player Lamar Odom is in critical condition after a four-day party in Las Vegas. Odom was found unconscious Tuesday in his VIP suite and rushed to the hospital. TMZ reports Odom is in the fight for his life with his heart, kidneys and lungs failing. The owner of the Love Ranch Vegas says Odom was taking herbal Viagra, but was not seen with any illegal drugs. He’s the ex-hubby of Khloe Kardashian who is reportedly at the hospital by his side as he is reportedly in a coma.

One social media platform you may rely on is apparently facing big struggles and they’re responding by cutting jobs. It’s Twitter and their CEO Jack Dorsey sent a tweet Tuesday confirming 336 jobs would be eliminated. That’s about eight-percent of the social media giant’s workforce. Dorsey, who co-founded Twitter, recently took charge saying Twitter is not generating enough money to keep up with growth. Insiders believe job cuts will affect just about every department.
