INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Police have formally charged a 21-year-old Indianapolis man for his role in a 2012 deadly shooting.

Detectives said Dominique Williams was charged with murder and criminal gang activity. Homicide detectives said community tips helped them identity Williams as one of several suspects who apparently fired a gun into a home and killed 25 year-old Sierra Bradberry in May of 2012.

Police said Bradberry and her family members and friends were at a home in the 3200 block of North New Jersey Street for a “celebration of life” gathering when Williams and several others fired numerous shots into the home.

Bradberry was taken to the hospital where she later died.

Detectives believe that an on-going feud led to the deadly shooting.

“[We] recently received information resulted in the arrest of a fugitive and member of the infamous street gang Buddah Boyz. He and others are responsible for taking the life of a young mother and community member.  We want to thank our Homicide and Gang detectives and the community for staying steadfast to bring justice and closure to this family.” said Rick Hite, Chief of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. “We are actively seeking the communities help with additional information related to this crime as we seek to hold others accountable for their role in this tragedy”.

Detectives collected forensic evidence at the crime scene that matched forensic evidence in possession of Williams when he was arrested on an unrelated incident.  Williams is currently being held in the Marion County Jail on unrelated charges.

Police believe that additional suspects were involved and urge anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-TIPS (8477). Callers may also text “INDYCS” plus tip information to 274637 (CRIMES).
