UPDATE: St. Joseph County Metro Homicide tells us two people were killed in separate shootings overnight.

The first happened during a “Juneteenth Summer Bash” party in the parking lot of The Heavenly Goat in Granger's Heritage Square. Five people were shot, with one of them dying. He has been identified as Victor Anthwan Kyle Jr., age 26.

The second person to die overnight was hit in a separate shooting at Elwood Ave. and Olive St. in South Bend. The victim was identified as Charles Edwards, 41.

The following news release was issued by Metro Homicide.

This morning at approximately 4:00 am, CMHU was called by dispatch to investigate a shooting at Heritage Square in Granger. A bar in the complex was the setting for an advertised party that drew a very large crowd. Upon arrival officers learned that multiple people had been shot. Five people were confirmed hit by gunfire. Four sustained non-life threatening injuries and one person was killed. There is evidence that suggests multiple weapons were discharged in the area resulting in a large crime scene. The family has been notified and the victim is Victor Anthwan Kyle, Jr., 26.

About an hour later, a second shooting was reported near the intersection of Olive and Elwood in South Bend. One person was killed by apparent gunfire. The family has been notified, and the name of the victim is Charles Edwards, 41. CMHU has mobilized all of our resources and appreciates all the assistance of our law enforcement partners from the Saint Joseph County Police, Mishawaka Police and South Bend Police departments.

The two separate shootings do not appear to be related and no arrests have been made in either shooting at this time. We continue to process both scenes for evidence and are speaking with witnesses.

Anyone who has information on either case is asked to call CMHU at 574-235-5009, Crime Stoppers at 288-STOP or your local police department.
