David Ice, 32, is accused of fatally shooting Darryl “Monk” Ransom Jr., 44, after what police believe was an argument over money, WXIN reported.

Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded just after 10:20 p.m. to the reported shooting on Dearborn Street to find Ransom suffering multiple gunshot wounds. He died at the scene, WISH-TV reported.

IMPD Capt. Don Weilhammer told the TV station that the victim’s son and his son’s girlfriend found Ransom dead inside a home.

Court records show Ice was wearing a GPS device after being charged with felony battery in April, following accusations he assaulted a co-worker at a Salvation Army building, WXIN reported.

According to the TV station, Ice was also charged earlier this year with auto theft and illegal driving, and his plea agreement in both cases required him to undergo anger management counseling and wear a GPS monitor.

Court records indicate witnesses helped identify Ice as Ransom’s killer and GPS monitoring placed him at the scene that night, WXIN reported.
