Surveillance video led to arrest in fatal Indiana shooting

CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) — Police investigators who arrested a minor in the fatal shooting of an 11-year-old northwest Indiana boy used surveillance video to identify the alleged teenage gunman involved in a fight in a city park.

The Post-Tribune reports that court records say surveillance footage show a group of young men approached a group of juveniles at Nunez Park May 5. The two groups exchanged words before the 17-year-old suspect pulled out a gun and fired at another juvenile, but missed.

The bullet struck David L. Anderson of East Chicago in the head. He died May 6 at a Chicago hospital.

Court records show the suspect was charged Friday with murder, attempted murder and attempted battery with a deadly weapon. He’s being held without bail at the East Chicago City Jail.
