Goshen man killed in Elkhart shooting

ELKHART — A Goshen man was killed Wednesday during a shooting in Elkhart, according to police, and two Elkhart youths have been arrested on murder charges.

Dead is Danzele Jermaine Johnson, 21.

Around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Elkhart city police responded to a burglary in progress at 1919 Frances Ave. The resident who called emergency dispatchers said people had forced their way into his residence and shots were fired.

Police said officers found two people — not residents of the home — who had suffered gunshot wounds. One was Johnson. Another was a juvenile male who was later treated for a non-life-threatening injury at Elkhart General Hospital. He was released from the hospital and later arrested at the Elkhart Police Department.

The homeowner told police that two people had fled the residence on foot. Police said that after a short foot chase, officers took one of them into custody in the 1800 block of Frances Avenue.

The two juveniles in custody in this case are 16-year-old Elkhart residents. They’ve been arrested on charges of murder.

Police said this morning the investigation is ongoing. An autopsy on Johnson was scheduled for 9 a.m.

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.
