Crime

KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (WANE) — A man was shot and taken to a hospital after police responded to an apparent domestic situation Friday morning in a Kendallville mobile home park, according to Indiana State Police.

The shooting took place just before 8 a.m. at a home along Aspen Cove, inside the Maple Grove mobile home park on the southeast side of Kendallville. Sgt. Brian Walker with the Indiana State Police said Kendallville Police were called to the home on a report of domestic violence.

When officers arrived, a physical altercation ensued and there was an “exchange of gunfire,” Walker said. The man — only identified as a “Hispanic male adult” — was shot. He was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital for treatment. His condition was not known.

Walker said a handgun was found on him.

The officer involved in the shooting was not hurt.

It’s not known who else was in the home at the time of the shooting. Walker said there were no children in the home, though.

Walker said he was not aware of any history of incidents at the home. He called Friday morning’s situation and “isolated incident.”

Indiana State Police investigators will turn the case over to the Noble County Prosecutor’s Office for review of potential charges later.

It’s not clear if the officer involved will be placed on administrative leave, as is common in police-involved shootings.
