KENNARD, Ind. (WISH) — The suspect in a Henry County double shooting is in custody.

According to the Indiana State Police, James Swift was taken into custody by Fishers police in Hamilton County.

Sarah Swift, 33, and Caleb Broad, 34, suffered life-threatening injuries. Swift was airlifted and Broad was taken by ambulance to an Indianapolis hospital. Their conditions were not available Thursday night.

A neighbor said he heard several pops before 5:30 p.m. and thought it was fireworks. Then, the neighbor told 24-Hour News 8’s Eric Feldman, state police and sheriff’s cars began arriving.

A 17-year-old boy who was visiting his grandmother next-door told Feldman that he heard at least two gunshots and a woman scream.
