Neighborhood Draws Huge Police Response

(LaPorte, IN) - More than a dozen of police officers responded to a neighborhood in the city of LaPorte over the weekend.  There were reports of gunfire, but the noise could have been

from the use of fireworks.


Darrin Charlson lives at Jefferson and Clay Streets.  He says there were two men involved in some sort of dispute Sunday night then police with guns drawn came rushing in. “There were a bunch of people here,” Charlson said.


At one point, he estimated as many as 50 to 60 people were outside where the incident happened.


He says police were there for about one hour. So far, police have not provided further details.
