Default 7 Wounded In Shooting Near Ball State University Campus By The Monkey VaShaun


7 Wounded In Shooting Near Ball State University Campus; VaShaun Harnett Charged With Attempted Murder

May 18, 2019 at 12:35 pm

(CBS/AP) — Seven people have been wounded in a shooting near the campus of Ball State University in central Indiana.

Police say 19-year-old VaShaun Harnett, of Muncie, has been arrested in connection to the shooting, and is charged with two counts of attempted murder. He is being held at the Delaware County Jail without bond.

Police said the shooting happened shortly after 1 a.m. at a house party just west of campus.

Muncie Police Chief Joe Winkle said three people were in critical condition. Some of the victims are Ball State students, but the extent of their injuries is not known.

Winkle said there were somewhere between 50 and 75 people at the house during the time of the shooting.

“We don’t get a lot of calls there, certainly these kind of calls,” Winkle said. “But I think anytime you have a DJ and you get word out there that there’s a party there, you are gonna draw a bunch of different people from all over town, so I think that’s probably what’s happened.”

Stella East, a Ball State sophomore and a Muncie native, told The (Muncie) Star Press that she was in the home’s backyard when the shooting took place. She said about 50 people were inside and 50 outside when she and a friend heard five to 10 shots from inside the house. After a brief pause, they heard about 30 more shots, moving from inside to outside.

“Everyone just ran in opposite ways when the shooting started. I just grabbed my friends and ran as far as I could. I was trying to stay calm but knew it was very serious and just had to get away,” East said.
