The name of a man killed in a Friday evening shooting in South Bend has been released.

Metro Homicide tells FOX28 News the victim is 31-year-old Dietrich Perkins.

The shooting happened in an alley behind a group of duplex homes near the corner of Lathrop and Johnson in South Bend.

A woman was in the same vehicle as Perkins. Officers say she was shot at as well, but was not hit. She talked to investigators and tells them that one or more persons may have shot at them.

A search of the Elkhart County Jail's database shows Perkins has been arrested a number of times in that county since 1999.
