Police investigating two separate shootings in Michigan City

The Michigan City Police Department is investigating two separate shootings that have occurred within the city limits in the last several days.

At about 11 p.m. Monday, June 29, officers responded to the area of 11th and Wabash streets in response to a report of shots fired. When they arrived, the officers located three individuals who had been shot. They were taken to Franciscan Alliance Hospital, where two of them were treated and then released. Police said the third person was severely injured and needed to be flown to a regional hospital for further treatment.

At around midnight Wednesday, July 1 police officers were sent to the area of 11th Street and Michigan Boulevard for a reported shooting. Upon the officers’ arrival, they located a subject with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The person was taken to Franciscan Alliance Hospital, treated and then released.

“Investigators believe these incidents to be isolated to the individuals involved and do not believe them to be random acts of violence,” the MCPD said. “It is still being determined if these shootings are connected. The police department would ask anyone with information related to these incidents to contact the lead investigator on the cases, Det. Arwen LaMotte at 219-874-3221 Ext: 1081. We would also like to remind the public that you can contact us via Facebook Messenger or through our crime tip hotline number of 219-873-1488. You can always request to remain anonymous.”

People may also call the WeTip Hotline for General Crime (800) 78-CRIME and possibly receive a reward upon an arrest and conviction. All WeTip call information is sent directly to the LaPorte County Prosecutor’s Office and always remains completely anonymous.
