Share this post

Police are investigating the shooting death of a three-year-old boy near Michigan City. Authorities responded to Terrace Acres Sunday afternoon.  The mobile home park is on US 20, near Hitchcock Road, near Michigan City city limits and just east of the Porter/La Porte County line.  Circumstances surrounding the shooting were being investigated, and there's no word at this hour who else was inside the house at the time of the shooting.  La Porte County Coroner John Sullivan says the child was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after 4 pm.  Sullivan says a forensic autopsy is being performed this afternoon at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center by certified pediatiric pathologist Dr. Joseph Prahlow, and more information should be available afterwards on official cause and manner of death. There was word that people were taken in for questioning last night, but no arrests had been made as of that time.
