LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A West Lafayette man was charged Monday with attempted murder and battery from an incident in a parking lot last week.
According to court documents, Gilmore attacked Matthew Ryker in a bar parking lot on Kossuth Street early in the morning on June 22. Police received a call at 2:30 a.m. of a report of a battery. Police arrived and found Ryker lying on the ground, unconscious, bleeding from the face.
Witnesses said Brody Gilmore approached Ryker, shoved Ryker to the ground, and kicked Ryker numerous times before leaving the area on foot. Police obtained a copy of the surveillance video from the bar which confirmed the witnesses' story.
Officers later located Gilmore at his residence in West Lafayette, Indiana wearing the same clothing observed in the video. He was taken into custody.
Court documents said Ryker sustained multiple facial fractures including an orbital fracture, a nasal bone fracture, and a broken jaw. Ryker also sustained a clavicle fracture, a sternal fracture, and multiple rib fractures.
