INDIANAPOLIS - A SWAT situation came to an end late Wednesday afternoon after a shooting suspect turned himself in to police.
Indianapolis police were stationed outside a home in the 1600 block of South State Avenue for six hours. They believed a shooting suspect was barricaded in the home, but the suspect was never at the house.
Police said Joshua Curbeaux, 30, was suspected of attempted murder in the Father's Day shooting that killed one and injured two others .
SWAT officers fired tear gas into the home just after 3 p.m. and entered the home a short time later.
Curbeaux is suspected of shooting Lisa Farley, 47, in the face at a home in the 3100 block of South McClure Street after his uncle -- Wendell Vanbuskirk -- beat Farley with a bat.
Vanbuskirk was killed when Farley's husband opened fire during the beating, police said.
Police believe the presence of the SWAT team was the reason that Curbeaux turned himself in. They believe friends of the suspect called him to let him know how serious it was at his home.
