The resident at the house where the Summers was struck told the Indianapolis Star "that she went outside to investigate a loud noise and found Summers lying on the porch, bleeding," according mercurynews.com.
Summers was taken to a hospital where she died.
• Summers was white. The suspect is black. The media, however, made no allegations of racism.

A 21-year-old man is jailed and awaiting federal charges in the fatal shooting of an Indianapolis mail carrier, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service said in a news release Wednesday.
Charges for Tony Cushingberry are pending in the Indianapolis district’s U.S. Attorney’s Office in the death of letter carrier Angela Summers, the release said.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department had reported Wednesday morning that an arrest had been made in the case, but had not identified the man.
Online records show Cushingberry is in the Marion County Jail.
IMPD and emergency crews were called to a person shot shortly before 4 p.m. Monday in the 400 block of Denny Street. That’s just southeast of East Michigan Street and North Sherman Drive.
The woman died later at a hospital, IMPD said Monday night. The Marion County Coroner’s Office said Summers was 45 years old.
