“I had no idea this was going on. I was at work, went to the bank and came home. The police said I couldn’t go anywhere near my house,” Watts said. “I’m just waiting to go in (home) and go to bed. It’s been a long day.”
At approximately 5:45 p.m., an Elkhart Police K-9 unit arrived and parked in front of the apartment house. The officer was seen walking the dog on a leash into the house and a short time later, made their way to the back side of the building.
After 6 p.m., the police rolled up the yellow police-tape that blocked off both ends of the street and gave the residents permission to enter their building.
