Man arrested in Indy for a deadly shooting in Elkhart

Elkhart Police say they've arrested the teen responsible for a deadly shooting late last month, after he was found in central Indiana.

Leeshawn Rodgers, 19, was arrested Monday morning in Marion County after the Indianapolis Metro Police Department helped to find him.

Rodgers is accused of killing 34-year-old Eddie Johnson on April 30. Johnson was shot and killed near the corner of Cleveland and 6th on Elkhart's south side. Rodgers will now be returned to Elkhart to be charged in Johnson's death.
