One hundred years ago, an angry mob would have burned the whole of Coon Town to the ground over something like this.
The man arrested and charged in the deadly shooting outside an East 82nd Street popular bar went to court for the first time Monday afternoon.
Jean Eyongegbe faces one count of murder in the shooting death of 43-year-old Jason Frazier of Fishers. The two got into a disagreement that escalated after being inside Drake’s.
During his initial hearing for the deadly shooting in the parking, the suspect kept dropping his head crying. Eyongegbe, a native of Cameroon, appeared to have a look of disbelief on his face during the hearing.
He barely spoke up to answer the questions from Marion County Superior Court Judge Barbara Crawford.
The court documents about the shooting show what police learned surveillance video and witnesses.
When officers arrived at Drake’s, they found Frazier on the ground shot and 23-year-old shooting suspect Jean Eyongegbe still on scene.
Their confrontation reportedly started after they left from inside Drake’s where customers play cornhole outside. According to people with Frazier, one of the two men said something about one of the women with Frazier.
During witness interviews, court documents show one of Frazier’s friends told investigators Frazier did not see the gun and ran towards Eyongegbe, and Eyongegbe shot Fraziewent back to the SUV and waited for police to arrive.
