Update: 3 Year Old Shot In Elkhart Has Died

Update: We now know more details on the 3 year old boy that was shot in Elkhart last night. Police say the boy has died after he apparently shot himself in the head at an elkhart home. Police said in a Friday afternoon statement that Jeremiah Ross died at a South Bend hospital where he was treated following Thursday night's shooting in nearby Elkhart. Police are still investigating the boy's death but said it appears that the gunshot wound was self-inflicted. An autopsy conducted Friday determined the child died as a result of a single gunshot wound to the head. Sgt. Chris Snyder told The Elkhart Truth that it wasn't immediately clear whether the boy lived at the house where he was shot. Police haven't said where the gun came from or how the boy came to handle it.



The investigation into the shooting of a 3-year-old boy in Elkhart continues. Police Sgt. Chris Snyder says officers were called to a home last night where they found the toddler suffering from at least one bullet wound. The child was brought to South Bend Memorial Hospital, where arrangements were being made to transfer him to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. As of late last night, Snyder was unable to release details about the shooting, but said there is no imminent danger to anyone in the area.
