INDIANAPOLIS – On April 28, 2020  Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) Homicide detectives, in conjunction with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and Federal Bureau of Investigations, have arrested 21-year-old Tony Cushingberry. 
On April 27, 2020, just before 4:00 p.m., IMPD officers were dispatched to 422 N Denny St. in response to a caller stating someone had been shot at that location.  When officers arrived, they located an adult female, later identified as 45-year-old Angela Summers suffering from apparent gunshot wound(s).  Officers called for the assistance of Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services (IEMS) who responded and transported the victim to an area hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries.
