INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis police are looking for a man accused in a double shooting that left the mother of his child in critical condition and her sister dead.
Quanita Wray, 24, called 911 just after 7 a.m. Saturday to say that she had been shot multiple times, along with her sister, Tiffany Wray, 21, in a home at 5419 E. 42nd St., said Indianapolis police Lt. Jeffrey Duhamell.
Officers found Tiffany Wray dead in a bedroom, with her 1-year-old daughter lying near her. Quanita Wray was transported to Wishard Memorial Hospital in critical condition, Duhamell said. Marco Robinson is wanted in connection with the shooting. Police said he has at least one child with Quanita Wray and that the couple had a history of domestic disputes. Investigators recovered Robinson's vehicle shortly after 2 p.m. Saturday. He is described by police as black, 28 years old and 250 pounds. Duhamell said Robinson had cut his hair. He recently had a restraining order filed against him. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
At first, police thought that three boys -- ages 2, 4 and 6 years old -- had been taken from the home after the shooting, but it was later determined that they had spent the night at a relative's home. They were located just after noon, Duhamell said. All of the children were taken into custody of Child Protective Services.
