Second Fatal Shooting in Four Days

(Michigan City, IN) - Two victims of fatal shootings found in motor vehicles have happened in Michigan City in less than a week. The most recent one occurred early Sunday.


Just before 2 a.m., the Michigan City Police Department was called to the Springland Avenue and Roeske Avenue area on reports of shots fired and a possible gunshot victim. An adult female with an apparent gunshot wound was in the driver’s seat of a vehicle that went off the roadway.


Life-saving measures were started and resumed at Franciscan Health Michigan City, where she later succumbed to her injuries. The name of the woman has not been released.


Police said no arrest had been made yet in the case. However, anyone with information is asked to contact Michigan City Police to help generate leads in the investigation.


Jimmy Brown, 53, was found shot multiple times on July 13. He and a passenger were discovered inside a vehicle outside East Side Liquors in the 1600 block of E. Michigan Boulevard. Brown also died at the hospital.


The passenger was also taken to a hospital for medical treatment.


Police said a person of interest was later detained, but so far, no charges have been announced in that case.
