ELKHART, Ind. - We now know the name of the man arrested in connection with an Elkhart shooting that sent two to the hospital today.

Thomas Harper, 19, was arrested after police found him hiding in a home down the street.

The shooting happened in the 1400 block of Franklin Street. When police arrived at the scene shortly after noon, they found two people suffering from gunshot wounds.

Their wounds are apparently not life threatening.

Oakland Avenue between Harrison and Marion Streets was blocked off for more than an hour, as a SWAT team was called.

Our reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth took this picture of Harper being led from the house in handcuffs.
