Teen arrested in Monon Trail shooting

June 17, 2011

Indianapolis detectives arrested a 16-year-old male in the attempted robbery and shooting of Gary Bravard along the Monon Trail in Nora on Thursday. Bravard, 58, was walking home on the recreational path at about 4:30 p.m. when two teenagers approached him and demanded money. He was shot after refusing to comply. Bravard was taken to Methodist Hospital in good condition. The suspect, who police did not identify, was nabbed after running to a nearby house after the shooting. The off-duty police officer who lives in the home was suspicious of the teen’s claim that he had just witnessed the attack. Police are seeking the second assailant.
