    IN - Hilary Acton, 33, shot to death, Indianapolis, 1 June 2015 *Arrest*


    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 1, 2015) – A woman was fatally shot early Monday morning in the 1400 block of South East Street during an attempted robbery.

    Mark Williams says he and his girlfriend, 33-year old Hilary Acton of Clayton, were were unloading a carload of clothing from Goodwill in the 1400 block of South East Street around 1:15 Monday morning. He told police two unidentified men approached them and demanded the items from their car. One of the suspects was armed with a handgun.

    Williams says neither he nor Acton resisted the suspects, but one of them fired his weapon, hitting Hilary Acton multiple times. He says he yelled to his brother for help and chased the robbers down the sidewalk.

    “I saw his eyes and he was scared when he shot her,” said Williams. “Then they ran and they turned left, then turned around and started shooting at me again.”

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Woman & boyfriend were "unloading a carload of clothing from Goodwill in the 1400 block of South East Street around 1:15 Monday morning."
    "Joel Russell works at a nearby pizza place and called 911.“I was standing at the back door and heard about seven, eight gunshots go off and some ricochets and I went out and called the police..." bbmhttp://fox59.com/2015/06/01/police-o...nday-shooting/

    So,
    earlier they were at Goodwill, got carload of clothing?
    1:15am were unloading goods -- to their home or apt?
    7 or 8 shots were fired.
    Boyfriend & his brother chased armed men down sidewalk?
    After hearing gunfire, nearby pizzeria employee called 911?
    Unusual.

    Sad, sad, sad.

    What were they doing from the time they picked up the clothes at Goodwill and the time they were at home unloading a carload of the clothes? I know the Goodwill here closes around 6 PM but I would be very surprised if the ones there were open til midnight.
    Did they have an confrontations with someone? Was this drug related? Was the husband's brother with them or was he just there to unload the clothes?

    I don't know how to find arrest information for Indiana but maybe one of the great sleuthers here can find out and let us know. Even better, maybe someone can teach me how to find it.

    This story just seems strange, but JMO

    We had gone to grocery store to get something to eat for tonight and then stopped at McDonalds for ice cream cones. Then she was getting something else to wear from car and they came up out of nowhere.
    Shooting happened ~1:15 am.

    So were they having dinner or snacking just before then?
    Or was there a time gap btwn McD's ice cream and going home?
    Or they returned home, there awhile, then she went out to car for clothes?

    Could be my (mis?)reading or the way story was edited.

    Her 2 boys are in grade school.

    Sad.

    Sounds like another random murder in a city recently plagued with violence. Very sad and totally senseless. Prayers for the victim and survivors. Their lives are forever marred with the loss.
