Carpenter, a 35 year old white male, is six feet tall and weighs 175 pounds, has blue eyes and is listed as brown hair; however, is believed to currently have a shaved head.

Photographs of Carpenter last indicate that he has facial hair. Carpenter was last seen driving a red and grey 1991 Dodge Ram 150, single cab, two wheel drive pick-up truck with Indiana registration TK913LGC.

Carpenter is believed to be the gunman involved in the shooting Monday that claimed the life of Nicholas Fields and Cory Michael Harris, and injured Daniel Smitson.

Carpenter is considered armed and dangerous. Investigators ask that anyone who observes Carpenter not approach him; rather, dial 911 immediately and inform dispatchers of your information. 

Under the Law, criminal charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
