IMPD detectives say the gun carried by a man who was shot and killed by police was the same gun used to kill the man's father.

58-year-old Charles Walls was shot and killed on June 24.  Police say the gun used in that shooting was recovered after his son Brent Walls was shot and killed by police on August 9.  Detectives also believe the description of the suspect seen fleeing the scene of Charles Walls' murder matches the description of Brent Walls.

Brent Walls was killed after he pointed a gun at officers.  He was believed to be involved in a carjacking earlier that morning.
