Four teens have been arrested, charged with killing four other young people earlier this month. The quadruple homicide sparked outrage in what has been a particularly violent start to the year in Indianapolis, with 32 people killed so far.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Chief Randal Taylor says this investigation was top notch. 

"The detectives and the officers that were out there that night, did a fantastic job in working that," says Taylor. 

IMPD Detective David Miller says the community involvement was critical to the arrests. 

"They know who they are, they stood up for what’s right in their community, and they put their trust in their police department and that’s the way these homicides get solved," says Miller. 

The teens, one of them 17 and will be tried as an adult, face murder and robbery charges.
