Michigan City Police say a car with 4 people inside came to the police department and met officers who were leaving the building.

Both of the victims were taken to Saint Anthony’s hospital, but one later died. The suspect or suspects are unknown at this time.

ABC 57 News spoke exclusively with a cousin of the victim who died. She tells us the victim is a teenage girl and the family is in shock because she had so many years ahead of her.

'It's terrible, she was a good kid," said Susan Simmons, the victim's cousin. 

According to Simmons, the victim's family lives in the area where the shooting happened.

"It's a terrible thing that her mom has to pass the street to go home and see where her baby was gunned down. It's awful that she has to see that," Simmons said.

Michigan City Police are asking anyone with information to contact them immediately at 219-874-3221.
