Police: Teen arrested after firing gun in Goshen

GOSHEN — A 16-year-old Goshen boy was arrested on multiple charges after allegedly firing a gun along Crescent Street Thursday night.

Around 7:30 p.m. Goshen police were called to a report of possible gunshots fired and a fight in the rear parking lot at 212 Crescent St. Police said the suspect is believed to have stolen a firearm from a relative and fired a round into the air as a threat toward a 15-year-old boy.

Police said that according to the victim and witnesses, the armed teen then pointed the weapon at the 15-year-old. The two exchanged words and then separated prior to police arrival.

The 16-year-old was arrested on charges of criminal recklessness, pointing a firearm, dangerous possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm without a permit and receiving stolen property. He was transported to the Juvenile Detention Center.

Police said Elkhart County prosecutors are expected to file formal charges against the teen Tuesday.
