Shots fired in Mishawaka Macy's parking lot, three teens arrested

MISHAWAKA, Ind. — Two young adults and one juvenile were arrested after shots were fired in the Macy's parking lot in Mishawaka.

Mishawaka Police Officers were dispatched to the Macy’s side of University Park Mall in reference to shots being fired in the parking lot.

Witnesses told police that three male subjects who were all teens, and all wearing black, fled the area running west toward Hickory Road. The first officer to arrive on the scene observed the three subjects near Hickory Road and attempted to stop them. All three of the subjects took off running west toward Ruthie. One subject was apprehended a short time later.

Officers set up a perimeter and waited for St. Joseph County’s K-9 Unit to arrive at the scene and track the other two subjects. During the K-9 search the unit recovered a stolen hand gun. Both subjects were later apprehended with the last one taken into custody in the 17000 block of Ruthie.

A 19-year-old and 16-year-old were arrested for Resisting Law Enforcement. An 18-year-old was arrested for Criminal Recklessness with a firearm and Resisting Law Enforcement. The 18-year-old was in possession of 38 caliber bullets which is the same caliber of the stolen handgun that was recovered during the K-9 search.

At this time there are no reported injuries, and names of the arrested adults have not been released after formal charges have been filed with the Prosecutor’s Office.
