Elkhart man charged in death of South Bend man on South Michigan Street

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. - An Elkhart man was charged with murder for his role in the death of 55-year-old Jon Senour, according to the St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office.

Antonio White, 23, was charged with murder and a firearm enhancement on July 19.

The sentencing range for murder is 45 to 65 years. The sentencing range for a firearm enhancement is five to 20 years.

White is currently being held by authorities in Elkhart County for an unrelated matter.

Senour was shot and killed in the 1900 block of South Michigan Street on July 13.

On July 13, South Bend Police officers were called to the area for a shots fired report.

When officers got to the scene, they found a black vehicle in an alley with a man, later identified as Senour, slumped unresponsive in the driver's seat.

Senour was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police discovered an apparent gunshot wound to Senour's head.

An autopsy determined Senour died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds.

Witnesses told police they saw Senour pull into an alley and a green Chevy Tahoe pull in after him.

Two men got out of the Tahoe and approached Senour's vehicle.

The passenger of the Tahoe hit Senour and the driver fired a gun at Senour, according to witnesses.

Police collected five casings from the scene. All the casings were fired from the same firearm, reports said.

Through surveillance and witness accounts, officers located the registered owner of the green Tahoe.

The owner identified the two men who were using the vehicle at the time as White and another man, reports said.

Surveillance video from nearby businesses captured Senour's black sedan cross traffic to turn into an alley, causing a green Chevy Tahoe to stop abruptly.

The Tahoe is then seen turning into the alley behind Senour's sedan.

Shortly after the vehicles turn into the alley, the Tahoe is seen quickly backing out of the alley and into traffic.

The Tahoe backs into a vehicle before driving away, reports said.

During the investigation, police determined White was driving the Tahoe at the time of the shooting.
