Traffic Stop Leads To Deadly Police-Involved Shooting In Gary, Indiana – CBS Chicago
The Lake County Coroner’s Office said 25-year-old Rashad Cunningham died of gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at 4:30 a.m.
Gary police said no officers were injured during the incident.
While not confirmed by police, one neighbor believes there could have been an exchange of gunfire, saying part of his house was shot.
“It makes me want to move,” said Cory Steele. “Because I got two children, and there’s bullet holes on the side, so I don’t know where that came from.”
“It makes me feel very scared because I have a three-month-old baby and the bullets could have went anywhere,” said Jamela King. “It could have came over to our house or the neighbor’s house, so it’s just pretty dangerous. I don’t really feel safe in a neighborhood like that.”
Gary police said the Lake County Sheriff’s Department will be conducting the ongoing investigation.
