INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis police have arrested a man involved in a fatal shooting in a dispute over a dog.
Albert Rogers, 26, shot and killed Joshua Tucker, 31, at a home in the 1300 block of South Edgecombe Avenue on June 5.
Rogers was taken into police custody after the shooting, but he was later released because he had a valid gun permit and both Rogers and Tucker had weapons.
Witnesses told police that a dispute over a dog led to the shooting.
Friends said Tucker was out of town on business when his dog ran out of the yard and toward another dog that belonged to Rogers.
Witnesses said Rogers fired warning shots at the animal, so Tucker went to Rogers’ home the next night to ask for an apology.
"The guy pretty much said you're not getting an apology, comes back down here 10 minutes later and kills him," the victim’s friend Cody Coleman said.
Detectives said Tucker was shot multiple times. Police said Rogers went to a nearby grocery store and called police claiming that he shot Tucker in self-defense.
