Indiana men charged in alleged drug deal homicide
Two Indiana men wanted in what police describe as a drug deal homicide in late October are in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
The suspects' names are are Quantry Brown, 18, and Lamont Carpenter, 20. The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office has charged both with murder, armed robbery and felony firearm for their alleged roles in the shooting death of Aaron Denard Beasley, 29, at an apartment building on West Grand Boulevard on the night of Oct. 25.
Police say the victim, Beasley, was visited by two men who came to buy marijuana. When the victim produced the pot, at least one of the suspects fired shots, striking him in the chest.
A gray Chevrolet Monte Carlo with Indiana plates was spotted leaving the scene, police say. U.S. Marshals worked in collaboration with and the Fort Wayne Police Department's Gang Unit and located Brown at a residence on Wildwood Avenue in Fort Wayne, a release from the Marshals Service said. Fort Wayne police arrested Carpenter last week.
Now authorities will work to extradite both to Detroit to face charges.
