Pierceton man allegedly shoots at homeowners during burglary

— A Pierceton man is in police custody after he allegedly shot at the occupants of a home he was burglarizing and then fled from police Monday night.

According to Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department Public Information Officer Sgt. Chad Hill, at 9:49 p.m. officers responded to a 911 call at 8947 E. 500 North. The residents of that address said they had arrived home to find a vehicle they didn’t recognize in their driveway. Police said a man then exited their home, leveled a long gun in their direction and told them to leave. However, the man then fired the weapon into the victims’ vehicle, police reported.

The suspect, later identified as Aubert Clevenger, 30, Pierceton, reportedly fled in a vehicle, which struck “stop sticks” that were placed by police near C.R. 150 North and continued until stopping at C.R. 150 North and C.R. 650 East. Clevenger then reportedly fled south into a field and then a nearby wooded area.

Officers surrounded the area and Winona Lake officer Joe Bumbaugh with his canine apprehended Clevenger.

Clevenger was bitten during the arrest and was taken to Kosciusko Community Hospital, police reported.

Officers said that the victims’ vehicle was struck by shot from a 12-gauge shotgun. Detectives are also investigating a burglary earlier in the day.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
