Wife of Indy man killed in 34th-place shooting seeks answers

INDIANAPOLIS — Two men have died following a pair of shootings in Indianapolis overnight. These homicides took place on the west side of Indy and the northeast side.

Just before 11 p.m. Monday night on W. 34th Place, police were called after a 56-year-old man was shot. This victim’s widow struggles to make sense of the murder.

“They just said he was outside his car and someone snuck up and shot him multiple times,” Faith Cade said.

Faith Cade spoke to her husband Barry Cade just hours before he was killed.

“He said he was going home because he had to work in the morning and that was it,” Faith said. “You know, I keep saying, ‘I want him to come home. I want it at home. I want him to come home.

Faith insists she doesn’t know who would want to kill her husband or why.

“You won’t hear anything bad about him. That’s why I don’t understand what happened,” Faith said. “The only thing I can think of is that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time because I don’t see anything more than that.”

Just three hours later, police were called to East Community Hospital for a second homicide in which a 19-year-old presented with a gunshot wound and died a short time later.

Police are investigating whether the death is linked to a call for gunfire on Holloway Avenue, where a group of crime scene markers stretched across several homes on Tuesday.

“Each of these incidents is a tragedy. It’s hard on the families,” said WISP Lt. Shane Foley.

Although the two homicides are in no way connected, Lt. Foley encourages witnesses in both cases to speak out.

“It is still early in these investigations. As we’ve talked about, we’re successful when people come forward and share information,” Foley said.

“I want them arrested and held accountable. I want them to hurt just like I hurt,” Faith said.
