Four sent to the hospital after two separate shooting incidents in Mishawaka over the weekend
MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- The city of Mishawaka rocked by two different shootings over the weekend, which sent four people to the hospital.
Police were first called out to Maplehurst Ave. on Saturday night after they received a call about a sixteen-year-old being shot in the neck.
The call came in around 7:16pm, when-- according to Mishawaka Police-- they arrived at a home on Maplehurst Ave with ten juveniles inside, and a sixteen-year old suffering from a gunshot wound to their neck. The sixteen-year-old, who has not been publicly identified, was conscious and able to speak with the officers. He was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition-- the wound was determined to be non-life threatening.
Later that night, multiple shots rang out at the Family Express gas station on Edison Street. One neighbor, who declined to go on camera told us that it sounded like an automatic weapon going off.
Mishawaka Police confirmed 42-year-old Sicerie Brooks was shot in the leg and 25-year-old Christian Tate was shot in the stomach, but managed to get himself to the hospital.
All three of those victims are in critical, but stable condition to the police.
We did speak briefly with the residents in the house on Maplehurst, and they declined to give an interview, but claim there were not ten people in the house at the time.
Anyone with information about either shooting is urged to call the Mishawaka Police at (574) 258-1684 or Michiana Crime Stoppers at (574) 288-STOP.
