Elkhart Police: Two 16-year-olds in custody in shooting


Elkhart Police say two 16-year-olds were arrested for murder in connection to a fatal shooting Wednesday afternoon.

Around 2:30 p.m., Elkhart officers responded to a burglary call in the 1900 block of Frances Avenue. Police say someone called to say people had forced entry into the home and shots were fired.

Officers say they found two people inside the home with gunshot wounds. One, 21-year-old Danzele Johnson of Goshen, was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy was scheduled for Johnson on Thursday. The other, a juvenile male, was treated and released from a hospital and arrested.

The homeowner told officers two other people had fled on foot. Police say they arrested one person about a block away from the home. It was not clear from a police news release if they are still looking for a second person who fled the home.
