Special Response Team deployed to arrest Elkhart man


The 500 block of Oakland Ave. in Elkhart was filled with police cars for over an hour Thursday afternoon as police arrested 19-year-old Thomas Harper. The suspect was apprehended only after a Special Response Team entered the residence on Oakland Ave. and placed him in handcuffs.

According to Elkhart City Police, Harper is currently charged with Burglary, a Class A Felony. However, the police report claims his arrest is tied to the incident earlier in the day when two people were shot near the intersection of Franklin St. and Thomast St. Neither victim's injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

We will report more details or additional charges filed when they become available.
