(La Porte, IN) - A suspect in a downtown La Porte bar shooting is now in custody. Keith Davis, Jr. is being held in the La Porte County Jail on charges including level 1 felony attempted murder.
The Michigan City man allegedly shot Jeremy Simmons in the face outside Lucky Bar early Saturday. Simmons was last reported in stable condition at an Indianapolis hospital.
Charges were filed Monday after La Porte Circuit Court Judge Tom Alevizos found evidence from the investigation was sufficient enough for Davis to answer to the allegations. Davis had been on the run until arrested on Thursday.
Authorities say it appears Davis shot Simmons at close range following an argument. Davis could face anywhere from 20 to 40 years if convicted of attempted murder charge.
