Man Threatening To Shoot Apartment Dwellers Is Fatally Shot By Tenant

posted on May 17, 2017

When a man was acting recklessly in the parking lot of an apartment complex, renters got understandably nervous, especially with children playing nearby. At just after 6 p.m. on Sunday, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police went to investigate reports of a man—later identified as Keith Banks—spinning his car in the parking and acting erratic. But before officers arrived, Banks fled the scene.

However, the suspect returned to the apartments after police departed, and was furious that someone had called police. Banks began to yell at residents, threatening to shoot them. Unfortunately for Banks, he began chasing an apartment owner who had a concealed handgun, and his permit to carry. The man shot Banks, then rushed to a nearby gas station to notify police. Banks was taken to a hospital where he died from gunshot wounds. After the incident was confirmed as self-defense, the resident who fired the shots was released.
