Indy man charged with reckless homicide following December nightclub shooting

INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis man has been charged with reckless homicide after he fired five shots at a crowd of people and killed one, according to court documents.

Torrion Williams, 27, has been charged with reckless homicide, a felony 5, after shots from his gun hit a woman outside a nightclub near Castleton in December .

IMPD received a call about a person shot dead at the Epic Ultra Lounge on the 8200 block of Center Road on December 26.

Upon arrival, they found Keyohnna Stone, 31, with gunshot wounds. Police said she was taken to hospital in critical condition but died two days later from her injuries.

In an interview with police, Williams explained her version of what happened.

Williams told police he was at the club with her husband. When he went to the bathroom, two men in the bathroom began to touch Williams in a sexual manner, according to Williams’ statement in court documents.

Williams told police he told them to stop and left the bathroom to go tell her husband what had happened.

According to court documents, when Williams told her husband, he and the group they had come with decided to leave.

As they sat in the car, an angry group of 8-10 people came out of the club. According to Williams, Stone was part of this group.

When Williams’ husband tried to speak with the group to prevent an incident from happening, the group pulled him out of the car and began beating him, according to Williams’ statement in court documents.

Williams explained that he grabbed a gun from their car and asked the group to stop and said he would start shooting.

According to his statement in court documents, Williams began shooting in the air. He also said he heard more gunshots than he was firing.

After he started shooting, Williams said someone then punched him in the face, sending his gun flying back into the crowd, according to court documents.

After filming, the band left the club parking lot.

Investigators were able to link the fatal shooting to Williams’ gun.
