On September 9, 1999, Elkhart police responded to a shooting at 668 W. Lexington St.

Upon their arrival, officers were informed Marlys Harper, 28, had been shot.

They found a woman performing CPR on Harper near the back door of the hom.

Harper was taken to a local hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.
