Two St. Joseph County officers injured during arrest at Castle Point apartments in South Bend

SOUTH BEND — Two St. Joseph County police officers were injured while trying to arrest a man at the Castle Point apartment complex Thursday afternoon.

The Warrants Division officers — Cpls. Daniel Bodle and Kenny Welsh — were in their vehicle and outside of the apartment of a family member of the suspect, Devin Myers, 22.

According to a news release, Myers had outstanding warrants for possession of a firearm by a violent felon, a Level 5 felony, embezzlement, domestic battery in the presence of a child and theft, all Level 6 felonies and misdemeanor conversion.


Myers saw Bodle as he left the apartment and ran away. Bodle reportedly chased Myers, while Welsh followed in his squad car. That officer drove around two buildings before getting out and pursuing Myers.

Welsh caught Myers and tried to use his taser to subdue him. That attempt was not successful, but he was able to tackle Myers and the two began fighting.

According to a news release, Bodle arrived and tried to help his partner keep Myers on the ground and also handcuff him. Myers took Bodle's radio and Welsh's taser and, because both officers lost their radios during the incident, they could not call for backup.

Some bystanders used the cellphones to video the incident while others yelled at police to leave Myers alone. The officers asked other bystanders to help, and one used one of the radios to call for backup.

The officers were able to handcuff Myers, and a handgun fell from his pants as the officers helped him stand up.

Welsh and Myers were taken to Memorial Hospital. Welsh suffered a head injury and was also treated and released. Myers went the emergency room for an evaluation.

Bodle suffered a shoulder injury and was taken to an outpatient clinic for treatment.

Myers was taken to the county jail and was questioned by the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms regarding the handgun possession charge, according to Sheriff William Redman.

He later was taken into custody on the felony warrants against him in addition to Thursday's incident.

SOUTH BEND — The fatal shooting of a 16-year-old Riley High School student was part of a violent weekend in South Bend in which an estimated 130 gun shots were either reported or detected in the city.

South Bend Police spokesman Ken Garcia said the tally came between 5 p.m. Friday and Sunday night and was based on 911 calls received, as well as ShotSpotter activations.

Included were three separate incidents where more than 25 shots were reported: just after 2:20 a.m. Saturday in the 1900 block of Charles Street; about 1:15 a.m. Sunday in the 1000 block of North Brookfield Street; and just after 6 a.m. Sunday in the 2500 block of Kenwood Avenue. The Charles Street location is off South Bend Avenue, not far from the University of Notre Dame.

Partly because of previous problems with gunshots, South Bend police had already deployed the “Armadillo” anti-nuisance vehicle near the Charles Street scene on Friday, before the weekend outbreak of gunfire, Garcia said.

There were also two incidents in which 10 to 15 gunshots were reported. In total, there were 15 calls for service related to gunfire, according to Garcia.

On Friday, at about 9:30 p.m., 16-year-old Curtis Frazier Jr., a Riley student, was shot and killed in the 1800 block of Sampson Street. Makyi Toliver was also shot, but survived. Two people were then shot Sunday morning.

A 25-year-old man was shot in the leg about 1:20 a.m. in the 1700 block of North Huey Street. A 30-year-old man was shot in the shoulder around 6 a.m. in the area of Kenwood Avenue and Fermont Street. Several occupied homes and a vehicle in the area were struck by gunfire. No other injures were reported. The shootings are not believed to be connected. Both men survived.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg and South Bend schools Superintendent Todd Cummings released a joint statement that said: “The shooting death of 16-year-old Curtis Frazier, Jr., is devastating, and we are deeply saddened by the gun violence that has taken the life of one of our community’s high school students. We will hold Curtis’s memory close and lift up his friends and family in the coming days and weeks. As we grieve with the Frazier family and offer our support, we also offer them our solemn pledge to condemn gun violence in our schools, our neighborhoods, and broader community.”

Buttigieg and Cummings attended a vigil Monday afternoon for Frazier at Riley High School.

Several cars left unlocked at gas pumps in South Bend have been stolen
by DJ Manou, WSBT 22 ReporterFriday, September 20th 2019


Drivers are learning the hard way that it only takes seconds to be a victim.

Three cars have been stolen from gas stations. They were left unlocked with the keys inside.



One of the gas stations is trying to remind people before they walk in their store.

The McClure gas station just off Edison Road in South Bend has had two customers walk out and see their car gone in the past two weeks.


Police say your vehicle and what's inside are easy targets.

It's so simple, and can save you from a big hassle.

“You can be running in for 5 minutes or 2 seconds to get something. That’s all it takes for somebody to see the keys are in the ignition and car is still running and take off with it,” said gas station customer Joseph Grzegorek.

He says you never know who is watching.

“They can take that upon themselves to wait until you are nowhere in sight and then steal the vehicle or anything out of the vehicle.”

“It only takes a few seconds for someone to steal it,” said Ken Garcia, South Bend police spokesman. “It’s a crime of opportunity. Don’t give them that opportunity.”

That's why police want people to be more like Shawn Kern.

He's the only driver we saw at the gas station within a half hour who actually locked his car before going inside.

Police recommend locking your doors even when pumping gas.

“You aren’t really watching the other side of your car and a would be thief maybe coming over and opening the door and grabbing stuff from inside.”

Just a few blocks over, Garcia says five cars in the past month had things stolen from them.

Resident Matthew McGuire says it's a constant problem.

“We’ve had things taken out of our car numerous times. I couldn’t even tell you how many times, probably at least once a year.”

Just last week his neighbor caught someone trying to steal his daughter’s bike, so he's not taking any chances.

“It's part of the bed time routine is to make sure everything is locked down. Garage door is closed, doors are locked, cars windows are closed.”

Locking your car is one thing but police say to not leave anything valuable inside.

Among those five cars, three guns were stolen.

“if a gun gets stolen it could potentially be turned around and used in a crime somewhere else,” said Garcia.

Although it doesn't feel like it today, winter is coming. Police say that means thieves will be on the lookout for people who leave their cars running to warm up.
