INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHR and WPTA) - The Marion County Sheriff’s Department says a murder suspect was mistakenly released from jail Thursday evening.

The department said 23-year-old Noah Edwards was released from the adult detention center after proper procedures were not followed, WPTA affiliate WTHR reports.

Edwards was taken back into custody early Friday morning, police say. Edwards was arrested on a preliminary charge of murder in the April 18 shooting of a 32-year-old man in Indianapolis.

Marion County Sheriff Kerry Forestal said he fully expects one or more employees to be terminated because of the mistake.
