POLICE NEWS: Sept. 4, 2013

Elkhart police shot and killed a man Sunday following a foot pursuit.

Dead is Jamie I. Benavidez, 27, Elkhart.

Prior to the shooting, Elkhart police had responded to a burglary-in-progress call at 332 W. Hubbard. Indiana State Police said Benavidez and a juvenile male fled from the home, and a foot pursuit began.

The boy, at 14, reportedly gave up and was arrested at 312 W. Lusher Ave. He was later released to his father. Police continued to pursue Benavidez until the chase ended at 328 W. Lusher. Elkhart police officers shot Benavidez after he allegedly pointed a gun at them.

Three Elkhart police officers fired their weapons at Benavidez, investigators reported. Those officers are Cpl. Bruce Anglemyer, 23 years with the Elkhart Police Department; Cpl. James Ballard, 16 years with EPD; and Sgt. K. Miller, 12 years with EPD.

Indiana State Police personnel are investigating the shooting as a matter of Elkhart Police Department’s protocol of having an outside agency complete an investigation involving its officers.

Crash reports

• A motorcyclist was injured at C.R. 24 and C.R. 3 near Elkhart Sunday.

The crash occurred at 1:57 p.m. According to Elkhart County police, a 1994 Harley Davidson XL1200 motorcycle driven by Debra Rigley, 59, Elkhart, approached a curve traveling too fast and left C.R. 24 and went into a ditch. The motorcycle slid onto C.R. 3 and came to a stop in the intersection of C.R. 24 and C.R. 3. Rigley was transported to Elkhart General Hospital for treatment of lacerations to her left forehead, back of head, multiple abrasions over her body and complaint of back pain. She was issued a citation for conditions requiring driving at reduced speed.

Firearm displayed

Two people told LaGrange County police that someone pointed a firearm at them Saturday as they drove down the road.

The incident occurred on C.R. 450 North near C.R. 500 West, north of Shipshewana. The individual with the shotgun said he believed the two people in the car were casing his property to break in and rob him.

The two in the car said the firearm was pointed at them. The man with the shotgun said he only displayed it.

LaGrange County police said information will be forwarded to the county prosecutor’s office for review.

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.
