INDIANAPOLIS — Murder charges have been filed in the case of an Indiana man initially believed to have died in a two-vehicle crash but later found to have been shot to death.

Indiana State Police say Devon Anderson was believed to have died as a result of the Sept. 21 crash on westbound Interstate-70 in Indianapolis. However, an examination by the Marion County Coroner's office revealed the 27-year-old Anderson had been shot in the head.

Police say 24-year-old Juan Garrido Vivas of Indianapolis was driving along I-70 when he allegedly fired a handgun into the vehicle Anderson was in.

Police say Vivas was arrested Wednesday on murder charges. He is also charged with carrying a handgun without a license and operating a motor vehicle without a license.

It wasn't immediately known if Vivas has legal representation.
