March 15, 2013

A 67-year-old homeowner was shot to death at about 6:30 a.m. on the north side of Indianapolis by a home invader who fled in the victim’s car. Moments before he was killed, Thomas Teft and his wife were drinking coffee in their home in the 7800 block of Harcourt Spring Place when they heard someone enter through an unlocked sliding back door. Teft went to investigate and was shot by a man dressed in a ski mask and hoodie. The shooter escaped in a 2009 black Hyundai Sonata with license plate IW813 that had been parked in the driveway.
