BEECH GROVE (WISH) — Police in Beech Grove have filed charges against a man they believe is responsible for a robbery and shooting at the Wal-Mart in Beech Grove on June 30.

Beech Grove Police Department issued a warrant for the arrest of Akeem Gunn. Police say Gunn may have cut his hair since the time of the incident.

Police responded to to a shooting in the 4600 block of South Emerson Avenue around 6:30 p.m. on June 30, where two men were hoping to sell thousands of dollars worth of cell phones at Wal-Mart to two buyers. However, one of the buyers fired shots.

22-year-old Jacob Faulker of Indianapolis was shot in the arm and upper chest. Detectives confirmed he was treated and released from IU Health Methodist Hospital.
The other seller, 27-year-old Daniel Witter, was not hurt.

Investigators say the buyers and sellers didn’t know each other. They’d been put in touch by another person, and then planned this meeting.

Two suspects got away with the sellers’ truck, full of cell phones, two rifles and two pistols.

Anyone with information on this crime or the whereabouts of Gunn should call the Beech Grove Police Department or Crimestoppers, at 262-TIPS.
