Suspect officially charged in shooting at Kelly's Pub in South Bend

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Charges have now been filed against the suspect in Wednesday night’s shooting at Kelly’s Pub, which left two people in the hospital.

The suspect, 30-year-old Armond Davis of South Bend has been charged for his role in a double shooting according to documents.

The two victims were identified as James and Michael Ford.

Investigators claim the suspect, Davis, got into an argument with the two men, then got in his car and shot them outside the bar, before driving off.

Michael was shot in the leg and a bullet hit James in the neck.

South Bend Police say James Ford is still in the hospital in critical, but stable condition.

Authorities say an officer caught Davis in a traffic stop Thursday morning, with a spent shell casing in his car, matching the rounds fired outside Kelly's Pub.

Thursday afternoon, the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office charged Davis with aggravated battery, unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, two counts of battery by means of a deadly weapon, and two counts of criminal recklessness.

Davis remains in the St. Joseph County Jail.

The shooting is under investigation by the South Bend Police Department’s Violent Crimes Unit.
