IMPD: 2 found dead in the 3100 block of North Gale Street on the city's east side

Thomas Emery, Tamika Jones-Fleming found dead

INDIANAPOLIS - A couple was found dead after an apparent murder-suicide inside a home on the city's east side early Monday, Indianapolis Metro Police Department dispatchers confirmed.

The bodies were found in the 3100 block of North Gale Street just before 7 a.m. and both victims had been shot, police said.

Detectives identified the victims as Thomas Emery, 27, and Tamika Jones-Fleming, 31. Emery apparently shot Jones-Fleming before turning the gun on himself, investigators said. According to police, the couple was not married and had been dating off-and-on for 10 years.

Police said two children, an 11-year-old boy and a 6-year-old girl, were inside the home at the time of the shooting. The children told police they heard the couple arguing Sunday night. They said they heard "three booms" before they went to bed but didn't realize what had happened until they woke up Monday.

The 11-year-old boy called 911 to notify police about the incident, detectives said.

Police said the children were waiting to be taken into custody by a relative.
