A woman is jailed after allegedly running over a man three times. Gaylyn Morris26, allegedly killed Andre Smith, 26, early Friday morning. She allegedly claimed he was her boyfriend.
Police officers in Indianapolis, Indiana, said they responded to a report of an “accident” in a parking lot at around 12:30 a.m. at the 3900 block of East 82nd Street.
“Officers arrived and found Mr. Smith lying on the ground under a vehicle,” police said a press release. “Apparently he was hit by the vehicle. The Indianapolis Fire Department (IFD) Engine Company 6 responded and unfortunately stated that Mr. Smith died at the scene.”
That was according to the parking lot of Tilly’s Pub The Indy Star.
Morris told a witness she tracked Smith down using an Apple AirTag and GPS, the affidavit of probable cause was reportedly provided. She found him with another woman at the bar, authorities said. She allegedly claimed Smith was her boyfriend and cheating on her.
Morris allegedly picked up an empty wine bottle and swung it at the other woman, but Smith intervened and caught her. All three were reportedly asked to leave. The situation reportedly tragically escalated after Morris and Smith left the bar and the other woman stayed inside to order food. Morris allegedly “circumcised” Smith with the vehicle. The man fell, and Morris “reached over him and then moved forward and hit him a third time,” the affidavit reads.
Morris allegedly got out of her vehicle before chasing after the other woman, but police arrested her.
Local prosecutors will make a final charge decision, officials said. Morris is being held in the Marion County Jail on murder charges, online records show. Court is scheduled for Tuesday.
