Two shootings near Notre Dame potentially related
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Investigators believe two shootings near the Notre Dame campus Monday are likely related, according to Fourth District Councilman Troy Warner.
At around 2 a.m. Monday, a man was walking near Corby and Notre Dame Avenue when he was approached by a lone gunman who demanded his belongings and then shot him in the leg.
Then, at around 10:30 Monday night, just a few blocks from the first shooting, a 30-year-old man was standing in the 1100 block of Notre Dame Avenue when he was approached by two male suspects in a vehicle.
They demanded his belongings and then shot him in the back as he ran away.
The victim was rushed into surgery but is expected to recover.
Warner says South Bend Police believe the suspects are juveniles.
The suspect in the Corby shooting is described as a male, black, 5′ to 5′2.”
The suspects in the second shooting were apparently wearing hoodies and may have had bandanas, and were in a silver four-door sedan.
South Bend and Notre Dame Police have since increased patrols in the area, and ask anyone with information to call South Bend Police or CrimeStoppers.
