Gary Police report a shooting, a brutal battery and two armed robberies in Gary yesterday.  In a statement released by Corporal Gabrielle King, the Gary Police Department stated:

At approximately 10:00 am a 26 year old man reports he was stopped at 42nd Avenue
and Pennsylvania Street  when he was approached by a known subject who said he owed
him money. When the victim did not give the subject any money he picked up a power
tool and began to beat the victim about the head and face, then ran off with the
victims cell phone and glasses. The victim was treated at a local for the injuries
he sustained.

At approximately 6:30 pm 20 year Rollen Smith pulled up to a residence in the 2200
block of Delaware Street and was talking to some guys who were outside when shots
rang out. At that point Mr. Smith and the others fled on foot, but the shooter kept
firing and he was shot, and fell down. He was then helped up by a friend and they
went to a store on 21st and Virginia Street, where they called for help, two cars
that were parked on Delaware Street were also damaged. Mr Smith was transported to
the emergency room for treatment for his injuries.

At 6:30 pm an armed male subject entered a store in the 2200 block of W 11th Avenue
and demanded cash from the register, while pointing a gun at the cashier. Another
employee walked up and startled the gunman who then fled from the store before he
could steal anything.

Between 11:45 pm and 12:00 am a 54 year old man was given a ride to an ATM in the
2700 block of West 5th Avenue. Once they arrived at the ATM the known party demanded
that the victim withdraw some money, after doing so the suspect took the money and
fled in his vehicle and the victim ran from the area.

There were no reports of any arrests as a result of these incidents.  The Gazette will keep you updated.  Anyone with information is asked to contact the Gary Police Department at 219-881-1210.
