UPDATE: Autospy takes place for Elkhart shooting victim

By  | 

ELKHART (WNDU) - UPDATE:
29-year-old Norman Gary's autopsy took place on Monday after he was killed from a gunshot wound over the weekend.

Police are not sure if Gary died from a police bullet, or from one in a gunfight that originally caused police to respond to the area.

Police are holding a press conference Tuesday morning to release information on the two officers involved.

They say depending on what comes out of the investigation, it might take a while until they know what happened before police arrived at the scene.

PREVIOUS INFORMATION:
The Elkhart Police Department has named the four individuals who were shot on the 1800 block of DeCamp Avenue in Elkhart early Sunday morning.

29-year-old Norman Gary was shot and died at the scene. The Elkhart County Coroner's Office is anticipating an autopsy will be performed on December 5.

22-year-old Jazzlyn Crase, 24-year-old Delanos Johnson, and 21-year-old Shawn Scott were shot and transported to an area hospital where they are currently being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

All four victims are from Elkhart.

The Indiana State Police is still investigating these events, and will release new information when that investigation is complete.

ORIGINAL STORY:
One person is dead and another injured in a police-involved shooting in Elkhart. Two others were also shot but not by officers, according to police.

Just before 4 a.m., police responded to a burglary in the 500 block of Capitol Boulevard. While officers were investigating, they heard gunshots. Police ran on foot and fired their weapons at a vehicle in the 1800 block of Decamp.

Elkhart Police Chief Ed Windbigler tells NewsCenter 16 the vehicle ended up crashing in the same block. One person inside died; a second person was injured, but police say it's unclear if that person was shot or hurt previous to the police-involved shooting.

No officers were injured in the shooting.

Police found a third person, who had been shot, outside a house at 1807 DeCamp Avenue.

A fourth person showed up at Elkhart General Hospital with gunshot injuries.

Detectives from Indiana State Police have taken over the investigation. That's standard protocol following an officer-involved shooting.
