Suspected shooter caught

July 20, 2010

A teenager accused of shooting nine people downtown Saturday at the height of Indiana Black Expo’s Summer Celebration is behind bars. A tip brought police to Westpark Apartments in the 7800 block of West 10th Street where Shamus Patton, 17, was hiding. They took him into custody without incident. Police and community sources indicate that Patton belongs to one of Indianapolis' most active street gangs, the Rachet Boys, which split off three years ago from a group now identifying itself as the Grimey Boys. A number of the people wounded Saturday night were wearing Grimey Boys t-shirts.
