UPDATE: Suspect in custody in shooting at West Jefferson Apartments


Mishawaka police have made an arrest following a shooting.

It happened Tuesday night at the West Jefferson Apartments in Mishawaka.

Police were called to the apartments just after 10 p.m.

One person was taken to the hospital with injuries.

Investigators say the suspect was taken into custody in Elkhart without any incident.

They say they are not releasing the suspect's name until there are possible charges.

Bethel College is not far from the scene.

Student Ethan Hunt says the school sent out a text alert about the shooting.

“I always feel safe on campus,” he told WSBT 22. “Campus safety does a good job of letting us know what's going on. Until this past year there hasn't been any instances, but in this past year there's been quite a few things going on."

All classes and activities at Bethel and John J. Young Middle School will continue as normal today. Police emphasised that they want everyone to know it is safe for students to go to school today.
