South Bend deals with 11 shootings in 12 days
By Mark Peterson | Posted: Wed 5:35 PM, Jun 12, 2019 | Updated: Wed 5:57 PM, Jun 12, 2019

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - June in general is off to a rough start in South Bend where shootings are concerned.


There have been 11 shootings in the city limits in the first 12 days of the month.

Early last Thursday morning, 28 shell casings were recovered on and around Meade Street, where two men allegedly opened fire on an occupied vehicle with the police department's own Nuisance Abatement Vehicle parked nearby.

“We had our armadillo parked in front of a house, so they don't care,” Police Chief Scott Ruszkowski said. “But we do, and it’s going to stop, one way or the other.”

While 23-year-old Stefon Gaines and 24-year-old Steven Gaines II appear to be the latest part of the gun violence problem for their alleged involvement in the Meade Street incident, a program called Stand Against Violence Everyday, or SAVE, has been part of the solution for the past year and a half.

“We respond after every shooting, whether it’s at the scene or at the hospital,” SAVE leader Isaac Hunt said. “I think we've been doing a pretty good job. We’re on pace to already have talked to, in the city, close to 12,000 people this year.”


SAVE has steered shooting victims and/or their relatives toward things like counseling, education and employment services while steering them away from thoughts of retaliation.

“We never hear about the [shootings] that we have prevented. I can honestly say that I know that we have prevented at least three or four shootings that took place just by us having conversations and better relationships,” Hunt added.

Hunt said that in 2017, the city had 102 shootings. In 2018, a year during which SAVE was on the scene for about six months, that number dropped to 78.

“It’s affecting our neighborhoods. It’s affecting our city as a whole, and families are living with this trauma after the shooting is over and the child is buried. Who is there to comfort them? We're doing the best we can, and we need more help to be able to do this role,” Hunt said. “Our role is the carrot and not the stick. We get a chance to be able to offer service to individuals that may need them. And our job is to try and eliminate the barriers and allow them to have a different lifestyle.

Multiple weekend shootings in South Bend prompt city police to ask county for help
By Lincoln Wright South Bend Tribune 2 hrs ago


Image

SOUTH BEND — Multiple shootings over the course of a few hours Saturday night into Sunday morning had South Bend police so busy, St. Joseph County officers had to step in to assist.

Around 2 a.m. Sunday, police were dispatched to Kelly's Pub at 1150 Mishawaka Ave., on reports of a shooting. Brandon Williams, 27, was killed and roughly 10 others were injured, according to police.

There were approximately 75 to 100 people in the parking lot of the pub at the time, and many of them then showed up at Memorial Hospital to check on those injured. Because of the crowd, the hospital went on lockdown around 2:30 a.m., as per protocol, and was on lockdown for roughly four hours, according to Heidi Prescott, a hospital spokeswoman.

The lockdown was done out of an "abundance of caution for our patients and staff," she wrote in an email.

South Bend police then were dispatched to the hospital to help with the crowd.


Other calls Saturday involved one at 11:17 p.m. when police investigated reports of shots fired into a home in the 2300 block of West Keller Street.

And about 30 minutes before the Kelly's Pub shooting, shots were reportedly fired at a party in the 900 block of North Adams Street. While police were there, they heard gunshots, Ken Garcia, a police spokesman, said. There were no injuries, but a South Bend police officer was listed as a victim on the public police log. Garcia would not go into further detail on why the officer was listed, but said there were multiple officers on scene.

No evidence of a gun being fired was found and no suspect was located. While police were searching for a suspect, the shootings at Kelly's Pub occurred.

Garcia did not know how many officers were working the third shift this past Saturday, but typically there are around 19. Because of the back-to-back shootings and the eventual crowd at the hospital, South Bend police were stretched thin.

"Basically every resource we had was busy," Garcia said.

That led to a call for assistance to the St. Joseph County Sheriff's Department.

"This isn't something new, we will always try to assist one another," Sheriff Bill Redman said. "South Bend was spread thin so they asked us for assistance."

Redman wasn't sure of the call volume, but while South Bend police were busy with the shootings and crowd control, county officers were responding to other emergency calls throughout the city. County officers have also been assisting city police by serving as security at a number of events. This weekend's shootings come a week after a South Bend police officer shot and killed 54-year-old Eric Logan after he was reportedly breaking into cars and approached the officer with a knife.

The police shooting has sparked outrage in the community, leading Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as well as community members, to hold a number of events. County police served as security at Buttigieg's Sunday town hall and at a Friday march organized by community members.

When asked if county officers were working security because the shooting involved a South Bend police officer, Redman said no. They are simply helping because they were asked.

"We are doing everything we can," he said. "We just want to assist South Bend wherever we can."
